National Dump the Pump Day is June 19, 2014. This is a day where individuals are especially encouraged to use public transportation or other alternatives instead of driving. In addition to the environmental benefits, using public transit is an extremely economical way to travel. As a matter of fact, the household that downsizes to one car can save, on average, more than $9,900 a year.
In an effort to support National Dump the Pump Day, NFTA Metro is preparing for a local campaign that will focus on the benefits of using public transit. As part of this initiative, we would like to obtain testimonials from individuals whom are using Metro services on a regular basis (two to three days per week). The testimonials must include a few sentences explaining the personal benefits of using Metro Bus/Rail and any tangible rewards by doing so. These testimonials will require the use of the participant's full name and affiliated business if applicable. A photo will also be required with submission. However, once a testimonial is selected by our review committee, a new photo may be taken for use in the campaign.
All testimonial participants will be entered into a random drawing to WIN one of five Metro Prizes. If you are interested in providing a testimonial, please complete the attached form. The deadline date for all submissions is May 20, 2014.
