WHY DUMP THE PUMP?
Thursday, June 20th is national Dump The Pump Day, a day that encourages people to save money by riding public transportation instead of driving a car.

Riding public transit is an economical way to save money, particularly when gas prices are high. The latest APTA Transit Savings Report shows that a two person household that downsizes to one car can save – on the average – more than $9,700 a year.

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.

Buster’s Destinations: Hooray for Hollywood

Hooray!  It’s Dump the Pump Day and Buster is already out and about, sending photos of his adventures back to us in the office today.  Since Buster had a meeting in Los Angeles, he thought it would be a great idea to show everyone how easy it is to use public transportation to avoid what can be a very challenging commute.  Buster is very ANTI road rage.

Buster’s hopped on Omnitrans Route 1, to get to the San Bernardino depot.  Normally when boarding Omnitrans, Buster would flash his 7-Day or 31-Day pass, but today he used his Dump the Pump FREE RIDE coupon, good for today, June 21 only.  He caught an early morning Metrolink train to Los Angeles’ Union Station, which cost only $23.50 for a round trip ticket. By accessing Metrolink’s schedules on his cell phone, he was able to plan his trip ahead of time.  During the journey to L.A.’s Union Station, Buster made the most of his time by doing some work on his laptop.   Riding in the “quiet car” made it easy.

At L.A.’s Union Station, Buster transferred to MTA’s Red Line to get to his destination.  Since Metrolink train tickets are good for a free transfer to any Metro light rail or Metro bus, Buster saved even more money on his trip, which allowed him to purchase a souvenir map to several celebrity homes, using public transportation of course.  Along the way, he noted the interesting stops:  Civic Center, 7th & Figueroa, Hollywood & Highland and more.  Buster realized he could easily visit the Los Angeles County Natural History Museum, catch a Lakers or a Kings game at Staples Center or take in a play at the Pantages Theater-all using public transportation.  What fun!

After work, Buster will use the Red Line and transfer at Union Station to Metrolink.  Since his commute time is smack dab in the middle of the dinner hour, Buster has informed us that he will disembark at the Montclair Transfer Center and grab dinner at The Hat in Upland, using Omnitrans Route 66.

He’s promised to bring back a “Los Angeles in Winter” snow globe us.
