Thursday is ‘Dump The Pump’ day and local commuters are encouraged to try public transit.
The Butler Transit Authority is joining with other public transportation systems around the country for this 12th annual event.
The goal of this day is to raise awareness of public transportation as a convenient and cost-effective way to get where you need to go. A two-person household can save almost $10,000 by downsizing from two vehicles to one, according to data.
Public transportation also helps to economically support and grow all different types of communities. Every dollar invested in public transportation has been proven to generate about $4 in economic returns.
