[November 5, 2019]

For the first time, Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) will offer FREE bus fares for you on Election Day.

The COTA board voted unanimously to offer FREE fares to you on Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2019.

According to Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA), it wants to improve access to polling places this coming election. Although the move is aimed at voters, anyone who wishes may ride the bus for FREE that day.

“The action taken by our board today reflects COTA’s organization-wide commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion. Mobility should not be a barrier to a better quality of life, and that includes exercising the right to vote. This will be a great benefit to the community.”
– COTA president Joanna Pinkerton

According to COTA spokesman Jeff Pullin, it will be the 4th transit authority in the state to offer FREE rides on Election Day.

The COTA board also authorized FREE fares for all veterans and active military members on Veterans Day, November 11, 2019.

The COTA board has offered FREE transportation on this day for several years.
