    Dump the Pump. Ride Public Transit.

    More than 130 public transit systems and organizations nationwide will celebrate the 13th annual National Dump the Pump Day on Thursday, June 21. Sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), this national public awareness day encourages people to “Dump the Pump” by parking their car and riding a bus or train instead. The tagline is: Dump the Pump. Ride Transit.

    Use Moovit to bike, bus, or ride the train (or combine all 3!) to your destinations today.

    • NYC-NJ

    First started in June 2006, this national day highlights public transportation as a convenient travel option that also helps people save money. According to the June APTA Transit Savings Report individuals in a two-person household can save an average of more than $10,160 annually by downsizing to one car and using public transit instead.
    “Public transportation systems in more than 100 communities nationwide are participating in Dump the Pump Day on June 21 to encourage new riders, while also thanking the 34 million riders who take public transit each day,” said APTA President and CEO Paul P. Skoutelas. “It’s a great opportunity for public transit systems to showcase the safe, convenient and reliable bus and rail services that serve people in communities of all sizes.”
