Dump the Pump for Transit

FREE Rides on C-TRAN June 15!

C-TRAN is celebrating National Dump the Pump Day on Thursday, June 15, with free rides for everyone on the entire system. Plus, early morning riders can find C-TRAN staff at both the 99th Street and Fisher’s Landing transit centers offering free coffee drinks from Pacific Perks coffee carts.

This is the second year that the C-TRAN Board of Directors approved free rides as a risk-free way for non-riders to try transit, and for C-TRAN staff to say “thank you” to those who already choose to ride and make a difference every day.

Challenge your friends to Dump the Pump on June 15!
