SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — Utah Transit Authority will offer free transit to all passengers on Election Day, the agency voted Wednesday — waiving fees for all services UTA provides.
This includes ParaTransit Services, Park City Transit, and UTA’s On Demand by Via.
“The purpose of this free fare day is to ensure unrestricted public access to polling locations across UTA’s service area,” the agency said in a statement.
The transit agency serves as the sole means of transportation for many Utahns on Election Day, according to UTA. The company said it will provide free transit so voters can make it to a ballot drop-off location Nov. 3.
Additionally, the agency said it will reduce traffic and congestion on the roads and in polling location parking lots.
“As an agency serving the community on a daily basis, UTA encourages everyone to participate in this election and vote,” UTA said.
