"Buses Are for Chumps" Day

Thursday is Dump the Pump Day, and the American Public Transportation Association is urging everyone to celebrate by taking buses and subways instead of polluting the air with SUVs. Putting aside the horrible name ("Hump the Pump Day"? "Pump My Rump Day"?), isn't this campaign self-defeating? If a lot of people really do use public transit for the first time on Thursday, the trains will be more crowded than usual -- and there will be a lot of riders who don't know how to stand in a moving vehicle without spilling hot coffee in people's laps. I can see a lot of people vowing never to take public transit again.
