National Dump the Pump Day is Thursday, June 15
RIVERSIDE, CA — June 7, 2017 — Leave your gas-guzzler at home and ride the bus on Thursday, June 15. That’s the message the Riverside Transit Agency is spreading for Dump the Pump Day, a national event on June 15 that encourages people to ride public transportation to save money and help the environment.
To sweeten the deal, RTA’s street team will provide giveaways and a limited number of free 1-Day passes at Riverside City Hall at the corner of Main and 9th streets from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. While there, members of the public can step inside a brand-new RapidLink bus, which will launch this fall with express service between Corona and Riverside.
“Dump the Pump Day is a great incentive for people to try out the bus, even if it’s just for the day,” said RTA Chair Linda Krupa. “Whether it’s to save money, reduce stress or help the environment, there’s never been a better time to ride.”
Indeed, there has never been a better time to catch the bus.
