Metro offering free rides on Election Day, Nov. 8; ballot drop boxes located at busy stations

Metro is offering free rides on all Metro buses, trains, Bike Share and Metro Micro  on Election Day, Tuesday, November 8. The free rides will run from midnight to 11:59 p.m. on November 8. 

In 2019, Metro’s Board of Directors voted to permanently offer free rides on federal and statewide election days to make it easier for voters get to the polls via public transit.  By offering free rides on Election Day, Metro is doing its part to encourage voter turnout and make it easier for people to travel to and from local polling places.

Union Station (East Portal)

El Monte Bus Station J Line, many local bus lines (plaza area)

  1. Maybe off topic, but I am just wondering why Metro still has not widely announced the currently proposed upcoming fare changes and fare capping, in The Source.
