Free Bus Rides on PCPT June 15

12th Annual ‘Dump the Pump’ Day Celebration

Skip a trip to the pump and take the bus!  The Pasco County Public Transportation Department (PCPT) is joining public transportation systems nationwide to take part in the 12th annual National Dump the Pump Day. To celebrate, PCPT is offering free rides on all regular bus routes on Thursday, June 15, 2017.

National Dump the Pump Day encourages everyone to use public transportation to get where they need to go, instead of driving a car.  Public transportation is a convenient and safe travel option that can help you save money.

According to the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), a two-person household can save over $9,000 a year by downsizing to one car and using public transportation.  By using public transportation, APTA also says we can reduce our nation’s dependence on foreign oil by 4.2 billion gallons of gasoline a year and reduce carbon emissions by 37 million metric tons a year.
