Congratulations to Marcus Thomas, Winner of Our Dump the Pump Contest!Return to Blog
A big congratulations to Marcus Thomas, our Dump the Pump contest winner! Thomas is a long-time Metro rider who walks to the Emerson Park MetroLink Station from his East St. Louis home, rides to the Delmar Station, and then takes the #91 Olive to his job at Winco Windows. “My girlfriend and I take Metro everyday. She gets off at the Union Station Station and takes the shuttle to Ameren; I stay on until Delmar. It’s just really convenient for us. I drive a Dodge Ram 150, so with the price of gas, I just park it during the week.”
Thomas was also excited about the biking prizes in the package, including helmets from Great Rivers Greenway and ride tickets from Trailnet, since he and his 10-year-old daughter Olivia like to explore the area’s bike trails. He said they are big fans of the MCT trails in Madison County, and was looking forward to checking out more of the Great Rivers Greenway and Trailnet events and rides included in the Dump the Pump information.
Other winners included:
2nd Prize: Tina Totty
3rd Prize: Bill Olson, Steve Whitfield, Danella Sullivan
Thank you to everyone who entered, and we hope you continue to Dump the Pump everyday.

Marcus, that is the spirit. Plus your truck gets plenty of rest. All of us need to dump the pump. Some of us don’t bother to stop and think about all the extras that come with owning and operating an automobile. When we leave our car at home and let Metro handle our transportation needs, it’s money back in our bank accounts. Each time when we go to the grocery store to buy food, or to other stores in St. Louis City or St. Louis County, 1/2 of that sales tax in the city and 3/4 of that sales tax we pay at the store goes to Metro so they can buy parts for the buses, trains, etc. Plus another car off the road means a cut in air pollution. Marcus, you have shown us what you think of the big oil spill and the proper way to handle it!
Way to go Marcus! Congrads on you win.
