Mayor Madeline Rogero and the Knoxville Transportation Authority

have approved fare-free service on all KAT buses on Tuesday, November 6 for Election Day.

“Transportation should never be a barrier to voting,” says Mayor Rogero. “Fare-free rides on November 6th will offer the opportunity to reach polls on KAT bus lines in Knoxville, and for those who have early voted, it’s an opportunity to take advantage of our fabulous transit system fare-free.”

KAT’s Customer Service Counter staff at Knoxville Station, as well as KAT’s information line at 637-3000, are available to help passengers plan trips to the polls.

“Our customer service staff are familiar with voting locations, and can help people plan their trip to their polling location now,” says Melissa Roberson, Interim Director of Transit for the City of Knoxville.

The Knoxville Station Customer Service counter will also be providing special giveaway items on Tuesday for those with “I Voted” stickers, in addition to providing trip information.
