Knoxville Area Transit is Fare-Free on Election Day

Posted: 11/01/2021
In an effort to make voting in Knoxville as easy as possible, the Knoxville Transportation Authority (KTA) has approved fare-free service on all KAT buses on Tuesday, Nov. 2, 2021.  

“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.  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.  Masks are required on all KAT vehicles and at Knoxville Station Transit Center.
