Dump the Pump For TRANSIT in Missouri on June 15, 2023- It’s like a Personal Pay Day

National Dump the Pump Day is June 15th, 2023, and a great day for Missouri residents to trade in their car keys to try transit to see the savings.  Public transit can be the golden ticket for cost savings across the state of Missouri for residents in any community.

According to the American Public Transit Association, individuals who choose transit over owning a car can save more than $9,000 annually. Additional savings can include the following:

  • No parking costs
  • No money spent on gasoline
  • No insurance or licensing fees
  • No need for oil changes
  • No vehicle maintenance or repair costs
  • No traffic congestion
  • No time wasted behind the wheel

“There is public transit in every county in Missouri. June 15 is a great opportunity for Missouri residents to try transit. Not sure how to ride? Missourians can contact the MPTA or their local transit provider for additional information. Dumping the Pump is the best way to give yourself a personal payday and ride with one of our many transit operators across the state,” said Kim Cella, executive director of the Missouri Public Transit Association.
