RTA providing free rides to the polls for the primary election on Tuesday, May 3

For Immediate Release

(DAYTON, OHIO)… To ensure access for everyone who chooses to exercise their right to vote in Ohio’s primary election, the Greater Dayton RTA will provide free rides system-wide on May 3. The RTA understands the necessity for reliable transportation to fulfill this constitutional right.

The RTA has long supported the community’s need for accessible transportation on important days throughout the year by offering free rides. The agency is continuing that trend by offering free rides on election days to further foster an atmosphere of inclusion and generate awareness for important causes and events in the community. These free rides apply to both RTA’s fixed-route and paratransit services.

Riders are encouraged to use the Transit app, or RTA’s official real-time information and trip-planning available at www.iriderta.org to plan their trip to the polls. Those needing to find their polling location can use the Montgomery County Board of Election’s website at https://lookup.boe.ohio.gov/vtrapp/montgomery/pollfinder.aspx.
