Participate in National Dump the Pump Day and Win Prizes

Thursday, June 19th is National Dump the Pump Day! What does this mean to you? It means that you can ride RTC RIDE, RAPID, and INTERCITY FREE all day on June 19th.

Don't want to ride the bus? You can still you can still Dump the Pump by trading a car trip alone for a trip walking, bicycling, or carpooling. I say choose bicycling ;-P, especially if you have a longer distance commute than 2 or 3 miles.
Bicycling means you can ride on the multi-use Truckee River Trail
Even better - record your green trip(s) between National Dump the Pump Day (June 19) through July 31, 2014, will be sent a small reward and be entered into a prize drawing for a more valuable gift and you can win more than one prize such as:

  • A Toshiba – Excite 7c-8GB Tablet (for riding the bus) 
  • A Fitbit One activity tracker (for walking)
  • Two Mini Monkey Lights by Monkey Electric LLC along with an RTC RIDE Adult 10-Ride transit pass (for bicycling)
  • JBL Flip Portable Stereo Speaker (for carpooling)
Don't worry about getting stranded if you carpool or vanpool. The Guaranteed Ride Home Program will help you if you meet the criteria.
See you out the roads and trails!
