MTD will provide free rides on Tuesday, November 8, 2016 from 5:30 am until 7:30 pm so that riders can get onboard and vote. Voting is a fundamental right and civic duty. MTD is offering free rides on Election Day so that everyone can have their voices heard. Public transportation is the only transportation for many people including those who choose to ride the bus rather than drive and those who lack personal transportation. They all should have the opportunity to vote.
Riders should be prepared and learn where their polling place is and which route(s) will take them there. MTD operators will not have this information. MTD’s website at cumtd.com has an easy-to-use Trip Planner. Registered voters can learn their polling place options at champaigncountyclerk.com. MTD ADA Paratransit customers may also receive free prearranged rides to or from their polling place between the hours of 5:30 am and 7:30 pm.
Get some exercise using the bus while you exercise your right to vote on Tuesday, November 8, 2016. From 5:30 am until 7:30 pm all rides are free. Just board and go—no ID, no pass, nor cash is needed!
