Sportran fares are comped on Dump The Pump Day, Thurs, June 19
National Dump the Pump Day encourages people to ride public transportation (instead of driving) and save money, says the American Public Transportation Association in partnership with the Sierra Club.
Riding public transit is frugality personified. The latest APTA Transit Savings Report shows that a two person household that downsizes to one car can save – on the average – more than $10,174 a year.
Additionally, investment in use of public transit is an overall positive for a community. “The data are clear: one of the strongest tools to create a vital and productive national economy and build strong communities is investment in public transportation,” said APTA President and CEO Michael Melaniphy.
