TOPEKA, KAN. (October 10, 2016) – On Tuesday, November 8th, Topeka Metro will offer bus rides free of charge all day for fixed routes, and provide two free rides for the paratransit users.

Susan Duffy, Topeka Metro general manager, believes that providing transportation for those who may have difficulties getting to the polls is a good way to help others fulfill their civic duty.

“Transportation for Topekans should not be an obstacle on this very important day. Our free service provides everyone another transportation option to reach their poll location and cast their votes in the general election,” said Duffy. “We are also extending our service to 8 p.m. to ensure voters can get to the polls and back home.”
