Dump the Pump June 20 and Ride Free on OC Bus

Celebrated on the third Thursday in June, National Dump the Pump Day encourages people to ride public transportation or use alternative options rather than driving by themselves.

Benefits include saving money on fuel, reducing vehicle wear and tear, minimizing road congestion, and providing more “me” time on your commute.

On June 20, Orange County residents are invited to take part in this national movement by experiencing OC Bus for free after pledging to ride and downloading the OC Bus Mobile App. With 63 fixed routes and 5,400 bus stops, OC Bus is a great choice for commuting, school, or performing errands.

Here’s how to get your free OC Bus pass for June 20:

  • Pledge to ride at this webpage
  • Download OC Bus Mobile App 2.0 if you don’t have it
  • Look for your free pass in the app wallet on June 20
  • Get on the bus and display the pass

This free pass is only available through the OC Bus Mobile App.
