Dump the Pump, Ride Transit on June 19
Put more money back in your wallet while helping reduce our nation’s reliance on fuel. June 19 is national Dump the Pump Day. Join the movement to use transit, carpool, walk
or bike instead of refueling your vehicle. Each year, the American Public Transportation Association (APTA) hosts the initiative as a way of reminding Americans that using public transit can help reduce fuel consumption and save money.
To participate, pledge online at valleymetro.org to Dump the Pump on Thursday, June 19. With your entry you will automatically be entered to win a summer vacation package in the metro Phoenix area (one entry per person please). The deadline to make your pledge is June 19 at 5:00 p.m. Let us know how you Dump the Pump using #dumpthepump on Twitter and Facebook.
