Dump the Pump – June 20th

 

On the third day in June, National Dump the Pump encourages people to use alternative transportation instead of driving. 

According to a report by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), a two-person household can save average $10,160 annually by downsizing to one car and using public transit instead. And, of course, walking, biking and public transportation are all great options to reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality in your community.
