In honor of Election Day, on Tuesday, November 8, Wichita Transit will offer free bus rides on all traditional bus routes and paratransit service. Free rides are valid for everyone riding to or from polling locations as well as any other trip during the day.
Riders do not need to provide documentation of voting to receive a ride. Transit buses will operate on a regular weekday schedule with service hours that span the full voting hours of each polling location.

Individual polling locations can be found by visiting the Sedgwick County Election Office website at sedgwickcounty.org/elections. A free online trip planner, along with bus route and schedule information is available at wichitatransit.org.
