Dump the Pump
Save your gas and ride Longview Transit all day for FREE!
On Thursday, June 15, 2017, American Public Transportation Association (APTA), and public transportation systems across the country will celebrate the 12th Annual National Dump the Pump Day. Longview Transit will be participating by providing FREE rides all day to customers who would like to try transit for a day.
In addition, Longview Transit will give away bus passes and surprise visitors with bus promotional items. Ultimately, it will be a fun-filled, exciting day for all Longview bus riders.
With the continued fluctuation of gas prices, everyone is looking for a way to save money. National Dump the Pump Day encourages people to ride public transportation (instead of driving) and save money.
Riding public transit is an economical way to save money, particularly when gas prices are high. The April APTA Transit Savings Report shows that a two person household that downsizes to one car can save – on the average – more than $9,000 a year.
However, public transportation doesn’t just help people save money, it also helps communities grow and prosper. For example, for every $1 invested in public transportation, $4 is returned in economic returns. Mayors know that communities with public transportation are more competitive. So, riding public transportation helps people and their communities!
