Tired of $4 gas?
June 21 is a great day to “Dump the Pump” and try transit
Leaving the car at home can create big savings and help the environment

The Puget Sound region’s public transportation agencies are joining forces to encourage commuters to make national Dump the Pump Day, June 21, the day they climb aboard buses, trains and ferries and spend their hard-earned dollars on something other than gas.

With volatile gas prices around $4 per gallon for regular, the more than 560,000 riders who take advantage of the region’s public transportation services already understand the savings they can reap.

June 21 is going to be a dark day.
