Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020 is Election Day. Topeka has routes that go by many of Topeka’s polling locations within the city limits. Topeka Metro fares have been waived for the month of November, so rides to balloting places are free.
“We know that transportation is often a barrier to those who want to vote in person at their poll location,” said Bob Nugent, Topeka Metro general manager. “Topeka Metro is an option to help others fulfill their civic duty, and the rides are free.”
A reminder that passengers must wear a mask on the bus and unless a passenger requires the ramp or have the bus kneel, passengers will need to board at the rear door of the fixed route buses. Lift rides may be arranged by calling 783-7000, and reservations must be made by 5:00 PM the day prior to the requested date of travel. Calls for the Lift are accepted daily from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Topeka Metro has a route map of our transit system with polling locations available here. If you need to look up your polling location, you can access it on the Kansas Secretary of State VoterView website here.
For route information, call 783-7000.
