National Dump The Pump Day - June 15, 2017
The 12th annual National Dump the Pump Day on June 15 is a day to highlight the many benefits of using public transportation.
From urban to suburban to rural communities, public transportation is a vital resource to Americans, and a cornerstone of our nation’s economy and local economies. In fact, public transportation helps to make a community economically competitive. Additionally, public transportation provides economic opportunities since 87 percent of public transit trips impact the economy.
Many people park their cars and take public transportation instead. According to APTA’s June Transit Saving Report, a two-person household can save, on the average, $9,797 a year by downsizing to one car.
Public transportation use reduces our nation’s dependence on foreign oil by 4.2 billion gallons of gasoline a year and it also saves 37 million metric tons of carbon emissions annually. Last, but not least, public transportation has a proven track record of reducing congestion. The latest research shows that in 2011, U.S. public transportation use saved 856 million hours in travel time, 450 million gallons of fuel, and $21 billion in congestion costs in 498 urban areas.

Stand Up for Transportation!
On April 9, 2015, supporters around the nation united in their communities and online to send a powerful message to Congress: It’s time to provide long-term investment for America’s transportation network.
Only comprehensive, long-term federal funding will enable us to repair, maintain, and adequately expand America’s public transportation, roads, bridges, ports, and rail systems to help bring our national transportation system up to speed with the 21st century.
Short-term, inconsistent funding slows progress and costs America’s taxpayers more in the long run.
Communities around the country came together to take part in Stand Up 4 Transportation Day.
Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
Article from Norwalk Now, April 2015, Volume 33, #4
Norwalk's Compressed Natural Gas Fueling Station is officially operating! The City of Norwalk's Transportation Department introduced the public and officials to their state of the art facility during a recent ribbon cutting ceremony.
Currently there are 14 CNG buses operating in Norwalk. Using this alternative fuel saves the city approximately $500,000 in the course of a year. Eventually the entire fleet of vehicles will be changed over to CNG. This helps cut costs and the environment.
