Dump the Pump Day

Third Annual National Dump the Pump Day – Thursday, June 19, 2008

Join in celebrating the Third Annual National Dump the Pump Day on Thursday, June 19, 2008..

The day is dedicated to raising awareness that riding public transportation helps improve the environment and conserves fuel. It also offers the opportunity for people to beat the high price of gasoline and support public transportation as an important travel option that helps reduce our dependence on foreign oil as well as reducing the amount of harmful greenhouse gases that are emitted into our environment.

earth_buttonOn June 19, public transportation agencies from coast to coast will join together to ask you to park your cars and ride public transportation instead.

So get on board and Dump the Pump.
