Thursday is the annual National Dump the Pump Day, when people are encouraged to take public transit instead of driving to save money on gas, reduce traffic congestion and lower carbon emissions.
And with the Blackhawks parade and rally starting at 10 a.m. Thursday, you have all the more reason to Dump the Pump. Avoid the crowded roadways and take CTA to the Loop.
Also, the RTA wants first time and veteran transit riders to log onto the RTA’s Facebook page, click the tab “#dumpthepump”, pledge to Dump the Pump and be automatically entered for a chance to win prizes.
Finally, the CTA is providing extra service for the Hawks rally. Read more on that.
