VIA Metropolitan Transit will offer fare-free service tomorrow, Saturday, May 4, for customers riding public transportation to their polling location under its long-standing Election Day “Ride VIA to Vote” program.

VIA will provide fare-free transportation for passengers who present a valid voter registration card to the bus or van operator on Election Day.

The “Ride VIA to Vote” initiative provides complimentary public transportation on uniform municipal, state and federal election days. The goal is to encourage civic engagement and participation among VIA customers and to provide transportation for voters who may not otherwise be able to get to and from their polling location.

The complimentary service is available for regular bus service, VIA Link, and VIAtrans paratransit service throughout the VIA service area. Registered VIAtrans customers should schedule their trip in accordance with VIAtrans policies and procedures by phone or online. VIA Link trips are available within designated service zones. Customers can connect to the VIA system to travel outside the zone. Visit to plan your trip.

Since launching the Ride VIA to Vote initiative in March 2016, the agency has provided thousands of rides for people traveling to or from a polling location. Customers can plan their trip to a polling place with the Transit app, and by using the VIA goMobile+ app, both available for download at A complete list of Election Day voting locations also can be found at For more information on riding VIA, visit
