Fairfax County encourages drivers to hop on public transit or share a ride on National DumpthePump day, June 21, 2018! According to the American Public Transportation Association, individuals in a two-person household can save an average of $10,134 annually by downsizing to one car. If cars stay home one day a week traffic will be reduced by 20%. Whether you take transit, share a ride, drive an electric car, bike, walk or work from home, you’re helping save gas, money and the planet!
