NEW YORK (WABC) -- Amtrak is honoring all essential workers across the country.
Every Amtrak train in service nationwide, along with several thousand trains and buses, gave two one-second horn blasts at 3:00 p.m. on Thursday.
It's part of the "Sound The Horn" campaign in a tribute to thank all heroic workers who continue providing critical service during these times.
The effort can be seen on the Twitter accounts of The MTA, Amtrak, NJ TRANSIT, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, NYC Ferry, and other regional bus and ferry operators all using the #SoundTheHorn hashtag.
