BCT Provides Transportation for Impactful Bucks County Tour of Honor

On April 15, 2024, Bucks County Transport (BCT) had the honor of transporting local veterans for the annual Bucks County Tour of Honor. The goal of this powerful event is to bring U.S. military veterans from Bucks County to visit memorials and sites in Washington D.C. that honor their service and sacrifices.

The experience began at 4am in Quakertown, where BCT drivers Hank Burroughs and John Cary, both veterans themselves, transported the group with a law enforcement escort to Parx Casino in Bensalem. From there, the veterans departed for the nation’s capital to spend the day visiting the Arlington National Cemetery, World War II Memorial, Korean War Memorial, and the Vietnam Memorial Wall.

For the veterans, many of whom served in the conflicts commemorated at these sites, the tour was an emotional journey allowing them to share memories and pay respects to fallen brothers-in-arms.

After reflecting at the memorials conveying the principles they fought to uphold, the 225 veterans returned to Parx Casino that evening. They were greeted by a heartwarming “Welcome Home” celebration complete with a motorcycle escort, showing the region’s appreciation.

“Providing transportation was a small way BCT could support this impactful event and our local heroes,” said CEO Jim Raymond. “We were honored to play a role in the Bucks County Tour of Honor experience these veterans will forever treasure.”

As a leading non-profit paratransit provider, BCT is committed to supporting organizations and initiatives that enrich the lives of Bucks County residents.

“Our veterans have made immense sacrifices to protect our freedoms,” said Terminal Manager Audra Chantelau. “Supporting them through the Tour of Honor was a humbling privilege.”
