Dump the Pump Day approaches

On Thursday, transit agencies nationwide will commemorate National Dump the Pump Day, a time to encourage and motivate the public to use their transit systems. The sixth annual event is sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association, in partnership with the Sierra Club and the Natural Resources Defense Council.

Public transportation systems from across the country –  from Alaska to Florida to Chicago — have signed up to participate in National Dump the Pump Day.   Some public transportation systems are offering free rides, holding contests and giveaways, and spreading the word through social media.

“Using public transportation is the quickest way to beat high gas prices – if it is available in your community,” said APTA President William Millar. “Additionally, riding public transportation on National Dump the Pump Day helps the environment and reduces our country’s dependence on oil.”
