Win 1 Year of Free Transportation!

The American Public Transportation Association (APTA) is hosting a “Dump the Pump” video contest. The winner will get one free year on public transportation!

Currently, only two videos are on the site. Save some serious money on transportation — approximately 30%, the largest percentage, of a working family’s budget in the US goes to transportation. Submit a video today.

There won’t be only one winner.

You don’t have to be an environmentalist to submit a winning video. You can talk about environmental factors, personal economic factors, quality of life factors, or any other factors that are influencing you to “dump the pump”.

It is easy to submit a video and you just have to go to YouTube to do it. If you haven’t used YouTube before, this is an easy system to use. You’ve seen YouTube videos. Now, you can make one of your own to win a free year on public transit.


On YouTube, load your video and make sure to tag it “dumpthepump” — it is submitted. The contest judges will find all the videos and choose their favorite. The contest judges at APTA will choose the video that has “the most overall impact!”

There won’t be only one winner. Second place wins six months of free transit and third place gets three months of free transit. And, of course, all of the environment wins as more people are able to see the benefits of “dumping the pump” and using other modes of transportation.

The contest started on June 18 and goes until September 18, 2009.

Win a free ride (or actually hundreds) on public transportation today. And help save the rest of the planet in the process.
