Thursday, June 17 is the 5th annual national "Dump the Pump" day. Commuters are encouraged to leave their cars at home and try public transportation on the 17th. Along with the many benefits of using transit (saving money, less traffic congestion, improved air quality, etc.), BARTA is promoting Dump the Pump with a drawing for free passes.
There will be an ad in the Reading Eagle to inform the public about the promotion and there will be an entry blank for people to fill out and deposit in boxes that will be placed at the Barta Transportation Center. Drivers will also hand out entry blanks to passengers on the 17th. The grand prize winner will receive 6 – 31-Day Anywhere Passes, 6 first prize winners will receive one 31-Day Anywhere Pass, and 6 second prize winners will receive 2-One Day Anywhere Passes. The drawing will take place on Monday, June 28th.
