Dump the Pump and Ride Free

OCTA is making it easier than ever to experience the ease and affordability of public transportation and ridesharing as part of Dump the Pump, a national celebration that encourages people to share rides instead of driving by themselves.

To increase awareness and promote ridership, OCTA will offer free rides on National Dump the Pump Day, June 21.  The free rides are valid on fixed route buses and are available only through the OC Bus app. Flyers with “I Rode OC Bus” stickers will be available in the literature rack of the buses, and those who share selfies showing the stickers will be eligible to win Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm tickets and gift cards.

To encourage ridesharing, Waze Carpool will offer free rides for carpoolers anywhere in Orange County from June 18 to June 22. Waze Carpool connects riders and drivers with nearly identical commutes based on their home and destination addresses.
