It’s time to say, no way to high gas prices! Dump the Pump and take your bike to work, carpool, take the train, the bus or just walk. As the price of regular unleaded gas rises, many South Floridians are opting for a cheaper and greener way to travel.
Stop spending time in traffic. Use your time to do other things as you ride not drive around South Florida.

Gas prices continue to “explode” and most likely your walet as well. On June 18th, South Florida Commuter Services encourages you to “Dump the Pump” to send a message that we must all do our part to conserve our precious resources. The average South Floridian can save thousands of dollars in gas, insurance, and costly repairs by opting to take the bus to work or carpool with a co-worker or friend. Diane, a Broward County teacher and another fellow teacher share their 30 mile commute everyday. Taking turns has already saved them nearly $1,000 in gas. Just imagine if you did the same all year. Visit South Florida Commuter Services website to show your support and tell the rest of South Florida to stop wasting gas, and time.

The South Florida Commuter Assistance Program was founded in 1988 to serve as a public information office during the I-95 expansion project, promoting alternatives to driving alone during the construction period. Commuter Services has evolved into a one-stop shop for commuter information as the Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) regional commuter assistance program. The program is dedicated to improving traffic conditions by promoting alternatives to drive-alone commuting.
Commuter Services hosts a Call Center (1-800-234-RIDE) to answer commuter questions and provide rideshare information. The Center also gives transit route information and automatically transfers calls to mass transit systems throughout the coverage area, including Broward County Transit (BCT), Tri-Rail, Palm Beach Transit (Palm-Tran), Miami Dade Transit (MDT), Treasure Coast Connector, and Community Coach/Indiantown Shuttle/Stuart Shuttle.
