Roll to the poll: Free GRTC fare, Lyft offering 50% discount on rides to polling places

If you need some transportation help getting to your polling place, GRTC and Lyft are here to help.

If you need some help getting to the polls today, two area transportation services are here to help.

GRTC is offering free rides to and from the polls all day long, and Lyft is offering a discount.

Customers can ride GRTC local City of Richmond Routes and City CARE van trips all day Tuesday, November 6th. No fares will be collected on local routes. CARE customers going to/from city polling stations must note this when making their reservations in advance to get their free CARE trips.

Most of the City’s polling stations are at or near GRTC’s city routes. See maps here.

If ridesharing is more your style, Lyft is offering 50% discounts to and from polling places. The vouchers, up to $5, will be applied by entering code “VOTEVA2” in the app. More here.

Polls are open until 7:00 PM and remember – if you’re in line when voting ends, you can still cast your ballot.
