June 18 Is 10th Dump the Pump Day

APTA will hold its 10th annual National Dump the Pump Day on June 18 to encourage public transportation agencies, businesses and supporters to promote public transit as a way to break the grip of the gas pump while supporting an environmentally ­sensitive alternative.

A toolkit available here provides a variety of resources in promoting the event, including sample media advisories and proclamations, print-ready artwork and ads, a fact sheet and a detailed list of suggested activities.

In past years, public transit agencies have hosted special events to dramatize “dumping the pump” (such as placing a facsimile of a gas pump in a dumpster), provided incentives such as free rides and giveaways for riders and done outreach at schools and with community leaders.
