Topeka Metro offering free bus rides on Election Day.

TOPEKA, Kan (WIBW) --- Topeka Metro will offer free bus rides all day for fixed routes and provide two free rides for paratransit users on Election Day.

They will offer the rides to those who may have difficulty finding transportation to the polls. For others, it serves as an additional option to go vote.

"Studies have shown that lack of access to transportation limits minorities, disabled, elderly, low-income as well as young people to have an opportunity to vote. Topeka Metro is helping our community by offering a solution to citizens who want to exercise their civic duty," said Bob Nugent, Topeka Metro General Manager.

The free rides will only be offered Tuesday Nov. 5th.
