Mid Mon Valley Transit Authority participates in SEVENTH ANNUAL NATIONAL DUMP THE PUMP DAY TO BE HELD ON JUNE 21
Dump the Pump. Save Money. Ride Transit.
With the return of high gas prices, Mid Mon Valley Transit Authority announced today that it will join with other public transportation systems nationwide to participate in the seventh annual National Dump the Pump Day on Thursday, June 21. The slogan of this year’s National Dump the Pump Day is “Dump the Pump. Save Money. Ride Transit.”
Sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), the 2012 National Dump the Pump Day is a day that encourages people to ride public transportation and save money, instead of driving a car. Started in June 2006 when gas prices were $3 per gallon, this national day emphasizes that public transportation is a great travel option that also helps people save money.
Since gas prices reached $4 or more this year, saving money is on everyone’s minds and public transportation is the quickest way to beat high gas prices. According to the latest APTA Transits Savings Report, individuals in a two-person household can save an average of more than $10,000 annually by downsizing to one car.
