If you've ever considered trying to live a little greener, tomorrow is the day to start!
The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) and public transportation systems across the country will be celebrating the 11th Annual National Dump the Pump Day.
Ride the Culver CityBus or local Antelope Valley Authority Transit buses for free all day tomorrow. Plus, Metro Rewards is offering a special promotion: Riders will earn double entries for the monthly drawing when they log in their transit commute at ridematch.info.
UCLA Transportation makes its even easier for you to Dump the Pump with our subsidized transit passes for six different agencies.
This summer, we're also giving away free BruinGO! Flash Passes (valid for Santa Monica Big Blue Bus and Culver CityBus) for anyone who purchases a Go Metro pass, in honor of the Expo Line extension opening.
Imagine all the money you could save by riding transit, especially with the continuous fluctuation of gas prices. According to a recent APTA Transit Savings Report, a two-person household that downsizes to one car can save, on average, more than $9,000 a year.
And it's not just your pockets that you're filling. Studies show that every $1 invested in public transportation generates $4 in economic returns. Help yourself, help your family, help your community, and Dump the Pump!
