NATIONAL DUMP THE PUMP DAY
TRY PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION ON THURSDAY, JUNE 21st
AND BE ENTERED TO WIN A FREE MONTHLY PASS
Sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), the 2012 National Dump the Pump Day is a day that encourages commuters to give public transportation a try. Recognizing our challenging economic times and the need for reduced living costs, South Florida residents are asked to make a pledge to join millions of other commuters already using public transportation.
As part of this effort, South Florida’s local transit agencies are offering a great incentive to encourage the use of public transportation. Commuters who call or visit the website and make
the pledge to ride public transit on Thursday, June 21st will be automatically entered to win a monthly pass on Broward County Transit, Miami-Dade Transit, Palm Tran or Tri-Rail.
Whether riding the bus or train, public transit options in South Florida are endless. Commuters can even try Broward Country Transit’s Express Bus Service on I-95 or the new routes along I-595 as a convenient way to travel to Downtown Miami, the Civic Center or Downtown Fort Lauderdale. Riders can also hop on Miami-Dade Transit’s I-95 Dade-Broward Express buses, providing service between Broward and Miami-Dade counties. Palm Tran’s Route 95 Commuter Express also provides service from Martin County to Palm Beach County.
Those interested should call South Florida Commuter Services
at 1-800-234-RIDE or visit www.1800234RIDE.com.
