(Omaha, NE) -- Those needing a ride to the polls next Tuesday can get a free ride on a Metro bus.
Metro says they will be providing fare-free transit on Tuesday, May 10th for the City of Omaha Primary Election with its Bus to Ballot program. Rides on Metro and ORBT buses and MOBY paratransit vans will be fare-free for all riders to provide access to polling places. This marks the fourth time Metro has offered Bus to Ballot, having provided free rides for the elections in 2021, 2020 and 2016.
“By providing free transit on Election Day, Metro is working to ensure that transportation is not a barrier to participating in the democratic process,” said Metro’s CEO, Lauren Cencic. “We’re proud to have an opportunity to support our riders’ civic engagement.”
