On June 16, 2016, SamTrans, Caltrain, the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), and public transportation systems across the country will celebrate the 11th Annual National Dump the Pump Day. National Dump the Pump Day encourages people to ride public transportation (instead of driving) and save money. Riding public transit is an economical way to save money, particularly when gas prices are high. The latest APTA Transit Savings Report shows that a two person household that downsizes to one car can save – on the average – more than $9,700 a year.

  1. That was a nice gesture SAM TRANS to invite us for a free ride on June 16 and to give us a gift and free snacks after our ride. I personally appreciate your generosity and would like to thank you in advance. Now where will I catch the Sam trans as I live in Los Prados St. , San Mateo and our cross St is Hillsdale Blvd. Can I catch my ride from along Hillsdale Blvd where it stops? Please advise & give me your instructions. My cp iPhone # (650)483-7359 or email address: catherinemostajo@comcast.net. I prefer you text me in my iPhone as it will come in handy for me. How about that Sir?
