On Thursday, June 21, 2012 LexTran will join other public transportation systems across the country to participate in the Seventh Annual National Dump the Pump Day. National Dump the Pump Day encourages people to ride public transportation — reduce your carbon footprint; save money.
All trips on Lextran and on American Red Cross WHEELS will be free on Dump the Pump Day. Lextran will also be distributing reusable tote bags to riders.
According to the American Public Transit Association, a two-person household that downsizes to one car can save – on the average – about $10,000 a year. A single commuter switching his or her commute to public transportation can reduce a household’s carbon emissions by 10 percent and up to 30 percent if he or she eliminates a second car.
