Join Us For the 12th Annual Dump the Pump Day


The 12th annual Dump the Pump Day is happening on June 15, and we at VTA are asking you to do your part in the fight against congestion. 

This Dump the Pump Day, make a pledge to get out of your car and jump on board VTA at least twice a month!

To help fight traffic, VTA wants to reward you for riding transit on Dump the Pump Day. From 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., VTA representatives will be spread across six different transit stations handing out gift cards to riders who say, “I dumped the pump today!”  It’s that simple, ride transit and help make a difference.  

Check out our Dump the Pump webpage for information on where you can find us to claim your prize!

 Dump the Pump: How do you want to start your day

Did you know that riding public transportation just two times a month can result in 108,000 fewer cars on the road?  The latest research also shows:
  • In 2011, U.S. public transportation use saved 865 million hours in travel time in 498 urban areas.
  • Public transportation use in the United States saves 4.2 billion gallons on gasoline annually.
It’s time to start thinking about our future and become part of the solutions that move you.
