The National Domestic Violence Hotline (The Hotline) has partnered with Capital Metro in Austin, Texas in an effort to raise awareness about the issue of domestic violence. The Hotline number is being featured on the sides of three buses during the next few months. Both the toll-free number and the toll-free text telephone number are being featured with a statewide statistic stating that 74 percent of Texans are affected by domestic violence. In addition, one hundred Hotline signs in both English and Spanish are featured inside one-third of Capital Metro’s bus fleet. Together, the signage is estimated to reach approximately 43,000 of the transit system’s 130,000 daily riders. Since Texas generates the second highest number of calls to the Hotline and Austin is the state capital and the home base for The Hotline, this was a perfect and logical partnership.
