Dump the Pump Day is TOMORROW! 6/17/10

Tomorrow (June 17, 2010) marks the fifth annual Dump the Pump Day in the United States. Dump the Pump Day encourages people to take public transportation instead of driving their personal vehicles. It's sponsored by the American Public Transportation Authority in partnership with Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and the Sierra Club.

Many different cities are doing different things for Dump the Pump Day. Greater Boston's MBTA is giving away commuter passes, Chicago's RTA is offering prizes, and DC's Metro is having a contest.  Check out your local public transportation's website to see if they have anything going on tomorrow!
