Dump the Pump
Want a better commute? Dump the pump!
The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) annually celebrates Dump the Pump, an initiative that encourages commuters to ride public transportation instead of driving. Saving money and reducing stress are two of the main benefits of riding transit. Thanks to everyone who dumped the pump during our June promotion to help inspire commuters to try out transit.
Choosing transit over driving alone saves commuters thousands per year in fuel and maintenance costs — that’s money you can spend on yourself instead! You deserve it. Plus, taking transit instead of driving alone qualifies you for cash and prizes from Georgia Commute Options — so transit is basically paying you double.
If you’re like the average metro Atlanta commuter, you’re spending over 30 minutes on the road to work, each way. What would you rather do with that time? Stream your favorite show? Read the news? Take a nap? Or maybe even get a head start on the work day? The point is, it doesn’t matter how you spend your time on transit — you can use it for anything you want.
