On June 15, 2017, RCT and other public transit providers in Vermont will join the American Public Transportation Association (APTA),to celebrate the 12th Annual National Dump the Pump Day. RCT will be giving away free prizes and a chance to win a Kindle fire on our free Deviated and Commuter routes! Drawings will be held on the Jay-Lyn route, the US 2 Commuter, the Highlander, and the Twin City Route. Come ride with us and Dump the Pump for the day!
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 January APTA Transit Savings Report shows that a two person household that downsizes to one car can save – on the average – more than $9,700 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! – The APTS
