Dump the Pump Day on June 16!

APTA will hold its sixth annual National Dump the Pump Day on Thursday, June 16—a great opportunity to promote public transit. After all, riding bus or a train is the quickest way to beat high gas prices—assuming public transportation is available. Also, according to the latest APTA Transit Savings Report, a household could save, on the average, more than $10,000 a year by downsizing by one car in a two-person household.

Last year, more than 120 public transit systems participated in National Dump the Pump Day. With gas prices possibly reaching even higher prices than in 2008, APTA anticipates that the 2011 National Dump the Pump Day will be an even bigger success. The Sierra Club is partnering with APTA and we will be reaching out to other national partners to make this the best National Dump the Pump Day ever!

To help you spread the word in your community, APTA is providing a toolkit, available May 9 by clicking here. It will provide artwork for ads, banners, and buttons, along with sample proclamations, a media advisory, a fact sheet, and suggested activities.

If you are participating, please contact Virginia Miller.
