Brown plugs mass transit’s ‘Dump the Pump Day’

An effort to promote transit received encouragement from Mayor Byron W. Brown today when he proclaimed Thursday as “Dump the Pump Day” during a City Hall ceremony.

Joined by Kimberley A. Minkel, executive director of the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority, the mayor referred to a national program asking commuters to ride public transportation and save money, instead of driving to work in a car.

The program was started in 2006, and he noted this year’s slogan of “Dump the pump; save money; ride transit.”
