June 19: Dump the Pump day
On Thursday, June 19th, the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA), American Public Transportation Association (APTA), and public transportation systems across the country will celebrate the 9th annual national Dump the Pump day. Dump the Pump Day is a national initiative sponsored by the APTA that encourages everyone to leave their cars behind and take public transit on the third Thursday in June each year. Riding public transportation is a great alternative to driving that helps you save money. The RTA will work with CTA, Metra, and Pace to promote usage of transit in the Chicagoland region.
STOP STRESSING about construction, traffic and high gas prices!
