Dump the Pump 2009
In these tough economic times everyone is looking to save wherever they can. The American Public Transportation Association (APTA), Triangle Transit and transit systems across the country will celebrate the fourth annual National Dump the Pump day on Thursday, June 18, 2009.
The day is designed to encourage people to get out of their cars and ride public transportation to raise awareness of the financial benefits of transit. Public transportation has the ability to save people money, conserve gasoline, and reduce the harmful greenhouse gases emitted into our environment.
