FL: Give Tri-Rail a Try on Dump the Pump Day

Commuters are encouraged to give up their cars for a day and ride Tri-Rail on Thursday.

It's part of the 9th annual Dump the Pump day, spotlighting high gas prices and promoting mass transit. The first event was held in 2006 when prices hit $3 per gallon.

Registered Easy Card riders will be entered to win tickets to Cirque Dreams July 22 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Non-registered Easy Card riders and those with paper tickets can register Thursday or Friday at tri-rail.com.
