INDIANAPOLIS — IndyGo believes every Hoosier vote counts, that's why they're offering free rides to the polls on Election Day this year.

The IndyGo Foundation is partnering with AARP Indiana to offer fare-free rides Nov. 8 on all fixed-route and IndyGo Access services.

Riders can plan their trips using Google Maps, the Transit app, the MyStop app or on IndyGo's website.

“Election Day is a critically important time for us in this country,” said IndyGo President and CEO Inez Evans. “Transportation should never be a barrier for those taking advantage of their civic duty. That’s why IndyGo and its partners worked to ensure no one has to worry about how they will get to the polls to make their voice heard.”

“Voting is a constitutional right that AARP Indiana believes every eligible person should exercise,” said Addison Pollock, AARP Indiana director of community engagement. “Encouraging people to vote is a cornerstone of our work in Indianapolis. This partnership is just one piece of a sustained effort to make it easier to understand when, where and how to vote. We’re proud to partner with IndyGo to provide free fares to riders on Election Day.”

Regular fares will resume Wednesday, Nov. 9.
