(OPEN):
THE NINTH-ANNUAL "NATIONAL 'DUMP THE PUMP' DAY" IS THURSDAY, JUNE 19TH.  AND, H-N-T-B CORPORATION'S LIZ RAO ["RAY-OH"] IS REMINDING EVERYONE THAT, WHEN GAS-PRICES SOAR, THEY'VE GOT A FRIEND IN PUBLIC-TRANSPORTATION...

(RAO):
"
MORE AND MORE AMERICANS ARE BECOMING INTRIGUED BY PUBLIC-TRANSPORTATION'S CONVENIENCE AND COST-EFFECTIVENESS.  INDEED, OVER THREE-FOURTHS ARE NOW OPEN TO RIDING PUBLIC-TRANSPORTATION, OVER DRIVING:  IT CREATES JOBS; LESSENS BOTH CONGESTION AND WEAR-AND-TEAR ON OUR ROADS; AND HELPS TRAVELERS SAVE MONEY ON GAS.  ONE OF TODAY'S MOST-VIABLE OPTIONS IS 'BUS RAPID-TRANSIT'--WHOSE FEATURES ARE SIMILAR TO THOSE OF RAIL-BASED PUBLIC-TRANSIT, YET IS MORE EASILY IMPLEMENTED AND COST-EFFICIENT.  WHAT'S MORE, NEARLY THREE-QUARTERS OF AMERICANS WHO CURRENTLY DON'T HAVE A 'BUS RAPID-TRANSIT'-SYSTEM WHERE THEY LIVE WOULD SUPPORT IT.  SUCCESSFUL COMMUNITIES THRIVE WHEN THERE'S A HEALTHY MIX OF TRANSPORTATION-CHOICES.  THIS HAS NEVER BEEN TRUER--AS THE COSTS OF COMMUTING CONTINUE TO INCREASE."
