In an effort to make voting in Knoxville as easy as possible, KAT is again offering fare-free rides all day on Election Day, Tuesday, November 8, 2022.
“Transportation should never be a barrier to voting,” says Isaac Thorne, Director of Transit for the City of Knoxville, “We are pleased to be able to offer fare-free service on Election Day.”
KAT’s Customer Service Counter staff at Knoxville Station are available to help passengers plan trips to the polls. In addition, KAT has information available on the homepage (katbus.com) to help the public identify their polling location. KAT encourages planning ahead and voting early on Election Day, as there are some KAT routes that end service before the polls close. Most polling locations for residents within the City of Knoxville are easily accessed from KAT routes.
