Get up a little early tomorrow folks- just early enough to give yourself enough extra time to ride the bus instead of driving. Tomorrow is national ‘Dump the Pump Day’ where you’re encouraged to use a public transit system instead of driving.
The day is dedicated to creating awareness about local public transit services and its advantages. Plus it doesn’t hurt your wallet either, with gas prices hovering around $2.90-$2.95 per gallon.
Maybe you could even show your bus driver a little gratitude on Dump the Pump Day. I’m trying to think what to get my bus driver as a token of appreciation. Normally I do coffee gift cards, but since we affectionately call him ‘Speedy Gonzalez,’ I don’t think he needs anything that would make him drive even faster.
