Dump the pump, ride freeway express free on June 15!

Omnitrans is inviting you to DUMP THE PUMP on Thursday, June 15, 2017! National Dump the Pump Day is a day to highlight the many benefits of using public transportation. Leave your car at home on this day and take advantage of our FREE ride coupon to use on any of our three Freeway Express routes.

It is fact that public transportation:

  • helps people save money on vehicle maintenance and other expenses. Did you know that a two-person household can save, on the average, $9,823 a year by downsizing to one car?
  • has a proven record of reducing congestion and travel time. In 2011, U.S. public transportation use saved 865 million hours in travel time and 450 million gallons of fuel in 498 urban areas.
  • reduces gasoline consumption and carbon footprint. One person with a 20-mile round trip commute who switches from driving to public transit can reduce his or her daily carbon emissions by 20 pounds, or more than 4,800 pounds in a year.

Great! I look forward to dumping the pump and riding Omnitrans. How do I get a hold of the free ride coupon?

Look no further than the official Omnitrans app! The app can be downloaded from the iTunes or Google Play app stores.

INSTRUCTIONS: Simply install the app, select the Free Ride tab on the menu bar, and present to the bus driver upon boarding the bus. 

The coupon is valid only on June 15th on Freeway Express Routes 208, 215, and 290. One per customer. No cash value. No print coupons will be accepted.
