Get paroled from the pump on Dump the Pump Day
Are high gas prices getting you down? Get paroled from the pump by joining RTD and other public transit agencies across the nation for Dump the Pump Day on June 21. Sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), Dump the Pump Day raises awareness of the economic and environmental benefits of public transit all year long.
According to APTA, the average household spends 18 cents of every dollar on transportation, with 94 percent of that amount dedicated to buying, maintaining and operating cars, which is the second largest expenditure after housing. By switching to public transit individuals in the Denver metro area can save $10,208 a year. Calculate your gas savings using the public transportation fuel savings calculator.
