National Dump The Pump Day June 21

Posted by Transit Action Network on June 20, 2012

Thursday is a day to ride transit and celebrate saving money, reducing pollution and gaining independence from the gas pump.

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.
