5th Annual National "Dump the Pump" Day

Thursday, June 17

Today is National "Dump the Pump" promoted by the American Public Transit Association and public transportation systems across the country. This initiative encourages people to ride public transportation (instead of driving) and save money.

The APTA suggests that in light of the recent oil spill in the Gulf, riding public transit will help reduce oil consumption, increase energy independence and is one of the quickest ways to beat high gas prices. In the U.S., public transportation use saves the equivalent of 900,000 automobile fill-ups every day!
