NASHVILLE – The Nashville Metropolitan Transit Authority (Nashville MTA) Board of Directors approved a motion to provide free rides all day, for all trips, on Election Day, Tuesday, November 3, 2020, for WeGo bus service within Davidson County to maximize opportunities for voter turnout.
“We’re here to connect people to their communities, and voting is one of the most powerful ways people can invest in themselves, their neighbors, and their communities on a local and national level” said Nashville MTA Board Chair Gail Carr Williams. “Many Nashville residents have endured extraordinary personal and financial hardships this year, so removing one obstacle to ensure their voices are heard at the polls was an easy decision for us. Put on your mask, hop on a WeGo bus, and VOTE.”
No special measures are needed for riders to take advantage of this opportunity: they can simply board the bus and go.
