Join RFTA, the city of Aspen and the city of Glenwood Springs in celebrating National Dump the Pump Day Thursday. From coast to coast, U.S. transit agencies will be urging people to “dump the pump,” park their cars, and ride public transit. Public transportation is the quickest way to beat high gas prices. National Dump the Pump Day is sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), a nonprofit association of more than 1,600 member organizations, including almost 400 public transit agencies.With gasoline prices at record levels, public transit systems across the United States are seeing an increase in ridership. “People use public transit more frequently when the cost of gas rises,” said APTA President William Millar. “National Dump the Pump Day on June 8 will highlight that by using public transit, people can beat high gas prices, help reduce traffic congestion and assist our country in beating our oil addiction.”Many Americans are finding that mobility is becoming unaffordable, especially here in the Roaring Fork Valley. By parking the car and using transit instead to commute to work, a person would save between $3,300 and $11,100 annually. Transit use saves more than 855 million gallons of gasoline every year. Dump the Pump Day is an opportunity to discover public transportation as a cost savings alternative to driving and paying high gas prices. So get on board and Dump the Pump on June 8.

Another Glenwood Springs City Council election has passed, but we doubt about two-thirds of Glenwood residents even noticed — certainly not based on the pathetic 31% turnout in balloting that concluded April 6.
