Iowa City Transit will offer free rides on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2022. Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.

“Our goal is to remove transportation as a barrier, and help people get to the polls and exercise their right to vote,” Transportation Services Director Darian Nagle-Gamm said. “We never want transportation to be a reason why someone didn’t vote."

Rides will be free to everyone all day. No proof of voter registration or destination is required to ride for free. A guide on how to use City transit to get to every voting precinct in Iowa City is available on our website.

The Johnson County Auditor’s Office oversees the election process and provides polling place information, sample ballots, absentee ballot request forms, and election day registration information.

Transit riders are encouraged to locate their polling place before boarding the bus. Riders who need help determining the best route to their precinct can use our polling place transit guide, use the Transit app or reach out to Iowa City Transit at, or 319-356-5151.
