Passengers presenting a valid voter registration card ride fare-free
VIA Metropolitan Transit reminds you to exercise your “ride to vote” on Election Day,Tuesday, March 1, 2022, for the Joint Primary Election in Bexar County.
The Ride VIA to Vote Initiative provides complimentary public transportation on municipal, state, and federal election days for passengers who present a valid voter registration card to the bus or van operator on Election Day. The goal is to encourage civic engagement and participation among VIA customers, and to reach voters who may not have reliable transportation to the polls.
The complimentary service will be available for regular bus service, VIA Link, and VIAtrans paratransit service throughout the VIA service area on March 1. Registered VIAtrans customers should schedule their trip in accordance with VIAtrans policies and procedures by phone or online.
Customers can plan their trip to vote at a nearby voting center with the VIA goMobile app. They may use VIA’s free systemwide 4G LTE WiFi to manage their goMobile account while making a trip or visiting one of VIA’s transit centers. The free app is available on Apple and Android smartphones. Visit VIAinfo.net/purchase-passes for more information.
All non-exempt passengers, age 2 and older, and VIA employees are required to wear a mask over their nose and mouth at all times when aboard a VIA vehicle or inside a VIA facility.
