Dump the pump, ride SunRail

Do you have a neighbor or coworker who’s been saying: “One of these days I’m going to try SunRail”?

Well tell them to stop yapping, and actually get on board.

This Thursday is National Dump the Pump Day, a fitting occasion to leave the car in the garage and to try out some transportation alternatives for a change.

We still have a very long way to go when it comes to alternative modes of transportation in Central Florida. But thanks to SunRail we now have more choices than ever – new bike lanes, vanpools in addition to Lynx and Votran buses.

Considering the congestion and construction on that linear parking lot called Interstate 4, now is a great time to check out mass transit.

The public bus systems and SunRail leave a lot to be desired in terms of frequency and connectivity, but they’ll never get better unless more of us start using them and demand more service.

Thursday is a great time to start by dumping the pump.

See you on The Rail.
