The City of Charlottesville is offering free rides to the polls Tuesday.
Charlottesville Area Transit (CAT) buses will take customers to voting precincts or anywhere else they would like to go free of charge on Election Day thanks to City Council's allocation of funds to allow for two fare-free days each year.
Polls opened at 6 a.m. and will close at 7 p.m., and all polling places are accessible by CAT routes. For routes and schedules, click here.
City Council allocated the funds for free fares in hopes of introducing the CAT service to potential customers and to reward current riders.
