You could win a free SmarTrip card or a Starbucks gift card by participating in national ‘Dump the Pump Day’ on June 15.
According to a release, the Potomac and Rappahannock Transportation Commission (PRTC) – which provides rail and bus service to Prince William, Manassas, and Manassas Park – will be participating in the day’s events.
PRTC is encouraging residents to leave their vehicles at home on June 15 and use public transportation instead.
“Those who travel on public transportation can save money and time and use their commute to read, listen to the latest podcast or catch up on sleep, arriving at work relaxed instead of stressed out from their commute,” stated a release.
After riding on public transit on June 15, riders can take a survey on PRTC’s website to talk about their experience, and be entered to win in a prize drawing.
There will be five $20 SmarTrip cards and five $20 Starbucks gift cards given away in the drawing, stated a release.
“The 12th annual Dump the Pump Day is sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association, APTA, to highlight the benefits of using public transportation. In 2016, Americans took 10.4 billion trips on public transportation,” stated a release.
