Dump the Pump

Posted: Updated:

Today SporTran joined other public transportation systems nationwide to participate in the ninth annual National Dump the Pump Day on Thursday, June 19.

Sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), the National Dump the Pump Day is a day that encourages people to ride public transportation and SAVE Money, instead of driving a car. 

It started in June 2006 when gas prices were $3.00 per gallon, this national day emphasizes that public transportation is a great travel option that also helps people save money. 

Individuals in a two-person household can save an average of more than $10,174 annually by downsizing to one car.
