Dump the Pump: Free bus fare Thursday in Waterloo

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Riding the bus will be free for people in Waterloo Thursday.  The Metropolitan Transit Authority (MET) is offering free bus fare to anyone wearing a special "I Dumped the Pump" button.

Buttons are available while supplies last at the bus transfer station in Waterloo, and on the buses.  The one day promotion marks the June 18th national "Dump the Pump" day, encouraging people to use public transportation.

Officials estimate 1,700 people ride Waterloo buses each day.
