TENTH ANNUAL NATIONAL DUMP THE PUMP DAY TO BE HELD ON JUNE 18

 

Dump the Pump. Ride Public Transit.

 

 

Lansing, MI – Coinciding with the continued fluctuation of gas prices, CATA Clean Commute Options announced it will join public transportation systems nationwide to participate in the tenth annual National Dump the Pump Day on Thursday, June 18. The slogan of this year’s National Dump the Pump Day is, “Dump the Pump. Ride Public Transit.”

 

Sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), the 2015 National Dump the Pump Day encourages people to ride public transportation wherever they need to go instead of driving a car. Started in June 2006 when gas prices were $3 per gallon, this day emphasizes the convenience of public transportation as a travel option that also helps save people money. According to the April APTA Transit Savings Report, individuals in a two-person household can save an average of more than $9,394 annually by downsizing to one car.

Additionally, public transportation is a cornerstone of Greater Lansing’s local economy. In fact, public transportation helps make a community economically prosperous and competitive. Every $1 invested in public transportation generates approximately $4 in economic returns, powering community growth and revitalization.
