Arizonans rode transit on National Dump the Pump Day, including Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton as a way to help reduce vehicle trips and take a vacation from the pain at the pump. As the largest Dump the Pump Day ever, more than 144 transit agencies across the nation participated including Valley Metro and transit operations in the cities of Avondale, Flagstaff, Tucson and Yuma.
