Clinton Transit Blue Bus Provides Free Election Transportation

To eliminate transportation barriers for voters, the region’s three transit agencies – CATA, EATRAN and Clinton Transit – will provide systemwide free rides to early voting locations Feb. 17-25 and to polling sites on Tuesday, Feb. 27, the day of the presidential primary election. There will be no in-person voting on Monday, Feb. 26. To ride free of charge, simply inform your driver that you are going to vote when you board. There is no ID requirement.

With the passing of Proposal 2 in November 2022, voters now have the constitutional right to cast their vote early for every statewide and federal election. For a list of early voting locations, ballot boxes and polling sites, visit https://mvic.sos.state.mi.gov. Trips to ballot boxes located throughout the three counties also qualify for a free ride.

Clinton Transit voters should call 989-224-8127 or use the Clinton Transit mobile app to schedule a ride at least a day in advance of travel to and from the county’s early voting locations and polling centers. Scheduling hours are Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. – 6 p.m., and Saturday, 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
