“It was with a very heavy heart that the American Public Transportation Association and its transit members learned about the shooting in Dallas last night.
We mourn the loss of innocent life and send our prayers and thoughts to the officers, including the DART officers, and their families.
We have reached out to the Dallas Area Rapid Transit to extend our condolences on behalf of the public transportation industry.”
