BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Golden Empire Transit is providing free rides on Tuesday for Election Day. GET announced the offer in a social media post. All rides on their fixed route buses and Get-A-Lift will be free.

GET Bus CEO Karen King said the company is happy to provide the service so everyone can get the chance to vote.

“The community can access the bus to get them to the polling location in their area. It’s very important to vote, we don’t want transportation to be a barrier for someone seeking to exercise their right to vote,” King said.

Social distancing guidelines are in place and masks are required aboard all GET vehicles.

You can find routes, maps and real time updates on the GET Bus website at getbus.org or you can download the Transit app. To find the nearest polling place, visit kernvote.com.
