The Alexandria Transit Company (DASH Bus), announced that it will join with other public transportation systems across the country and participate in the sixth annual National Dump the Pump Day on Thursday, June 16, 2011.
The slogan for this year’s National Dump the Pump Day is: “Dump the Pump. Save Money. Ride Transit.” The sixth annual National Dump the Pump Day on June 16 is a day to highlight that when gas prices are high, public transportation is a great alternative to driving that will help people save money. The day is sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association.
So with gas prices at $4 + a gallon here in the D.C. area, consider dumping the pump on Thursday, June 16 and take public transportation.
