Mounting multiple volumes on a docker container?

I know I can mount a directory in my host on my container using something like

docker run -t -i -v '/on/my/host:/on/the/container' ubuntu /bin/bash

Is there a way to create more than one host-container pair? e.g. a comma-separated list, or pass in an array?

    Pass multiple -v arguments.

    For instance:

    docker -v /on/my/host/1:/on/the/container/1 \
           -v /on/my/host/2:/on/the/container/2 \

    Or you can do

    docker run -v /var/volume1 -v /var/volume2 DATA busybox true
    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
