National Dump The Pump Day June 21
Posted by Transit Action Network on June 20, 2012
Take a few minutes to use the Metros “The True Cost of Driving” calculator. This exercise will open your eyes about the cost of having a car.
The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) has a great fact sheet for Dump the Pump day with lots of quick transit facts about how transit saves money, provides economic opportunities, saves fuel, reduces congestion and much more.
According to APTA’s Transit Saving Report, a two-person household can save, on the average, more than $10,000 a year by downsizing to one car.
The JO is celebrating by giving a prize to 10 riders. To enter the drawing, tell them on Facebook how you dumped the pump.
Have fun tomorrow and join the celebration.
