NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — All WeGo bus service in Davidson County will be free today for Election Day.
The Nashville Metro Transit Authority (MTA) Board of Directors approved the motion in an effort to increase 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.”
Riders do not need anything additional to ride for free. MTA says they can just board the bus and go.
