Dump the Pump Day



The American Public Transportation Association is organizing the third annual Dump the Pump Day tomorrow.

Join in celebrating the Third Annual National Dump the Pump Day on Thursday, June 19, 2008..

The day is dedicated to raising awareness that riding public transportation helps improve the environment and conserves fuel. It also offers the opportunity for people to beat the high price of gasoline and support public transportation as an important travel option that helps reduce our dependence on foreign oil as well as reducing the amount of harmful greenhouse gases that are emitted into our environment.

So get on board and Dump the Pump.

We can do one better than that, avoid the pump all together. Don’t rely on fuel powered vehicles, ride your bike! Yet another motivational reason to get out and try bike commuting, what are you waiting for?

    Don't forget that humans were designed for walking which is always a viable, low-cost urban transportation alternative.

    True enough. Although with my 32 mile round trip commute, I'd spend half the day walking to and from work 😉

    I know a guy in Santa Cruz with "One Less Bus" on the back of his bike 🙂
