Dumping the Pump in Los Angeles

A Los Angeles Metro employee celebrates Dump the Pump Day, June 19, by bulldozing a gas pump before dropping it in a recycling bin. Other activities to commemorate the benefits of taking public transit instead of driving included the 11-day “Dump The Pump, Try The Bus, Save Some Cash, Reduce Traffic Congestion, Commute With Ease, Save Our Air and Get Swag Scavenger Hunt” in Greensboro, NC; publishing testimonials from riders in the local newspaper in Buffalo, NY; holding celebrations at major public transit centers and park-and-rides in San Antonio; giving discounts at Reno area businesses for people wearing stickers showing that they rode Regional Transportation Commission of Washoe County buses that day; offering free one-day Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority unlimited ride passes in exchange for a gasoline receipt in Tampa, FL; and discounting baseball tickets for Central Ohio Transit Authority monthly pass holders who took the bus to the ballpark in Columbus.
