IndyGo, Lime giving free rides to and from the polls on Election Day


INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - IndyGo and Lime will be offering free rides on Election Day.

The City-County Council requested the bus service consider giving free rides to encourage Marion County residents to vote. Thursday, IndyGo approved free rides for all IndyGo bus riders on November 6.

IndyGo CEO Michael Terry said he cannot recall free Election Day rides being offered in Indianapolis before.

The council is expected to approve the bus company's offer at a meeting next week.

Also Thursday, scooter-sharing company Lime announced that all riders in the U.S. will get two free rides on November 6.

Riders will need to use the code LIME2VOTE18. That will give riders access to any of Lime's shared bikes, e-bikes, and e-scooters for a free ride to and from their polling location. The trip time can be up to 30 minutes.
