On Monday, October 5, Marin Transit’s Board of Directors unanimously approved free local transit rides county-wide on all fixed routes during the upcoming 2020 General Election.
This promotional campaign offers voters a free transportation option to the polls. The free fare days will provide a touchless boarding process without the need to navigate fare payment, minimize interaction between riders and drivers, and reduce boarding times at bus stops. Free fares will also eliminate a potential cost barrier for riders and provide an additional incentive for voters to take public transit to polling places.
All Marin Transit local routes, supplemental routes, and the West Marin Stagecoach will be fare free from October 31 through November 3, 2020. Demand response services including paratransit, Catch-A-Ride, Dial-A-Ride, and Connect will be exempt from the free fare offerings.
