Are you Dumping the Pump Today?


I hope you’re celebrating Dump the Pump Day.  Time is running out if you want to participate!

All you have to do is upload photos of yourself riding on CTA, Metra or Pace to your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages, along with hashtags #DTPChi or #DumpThePumpSweeps, and you’ll be automatically entered into a drawing to win great prizes.  Rules allow only one raffle entry per rider but feel free to upload as many photos of you riding our region’s transit system as you’d like. Pictures will be accepted until the end of today.

So whether you’re a first time or veteran transit rider, join the RTA, CTA, Metra and Pace, along with thousands of people across the nation who are leaving their cars behind and jumping aboard a bus or train.

This is the 11th annual Dump the Pump Day, a national initiative sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association that encourages everyone to leave their cars behind and take public transportation on the third Thursday in June each year.

And don’t forget to spread the word about Dump the Pump.  Remember, with each ride, commuters contribute to the regional economy, help preserve our environment and save time and money.
