BRITE Bus offering free rides on Election Day
BRITE Bus is offering free rides next week on Election Day.
The free rides are for everyone riding that day, not just those headed to the polls. BRITE Bus has stops near many of the polling locations in Staunton, Augusta County and Waynesboro, and they wanted to help overcome some of the obstacles people face on Election Day.
"There are people who don't have another alternative to get to their polling place, and they feel like that's an obstacle to voting," Nancy Gourley, Transit Manager for BRITE Transit System, said. "We feel like this maybe takes down that one barrier to voting."
This is the first time that BRITE Bus has offered free rides on Election Day. You can find more information about bus routes and stops
