The entire Blacksburg Transit system will be fare free day on Election Day, Tuesday.


Blacksburg Transit is waving fees Tuesday for those that need a ride to vote. The following routes correspond with voting districts in Christiansburg and Blacksburg.

Riders in both Blacksburg and Christiansburg can use the service to get to many polling destinations. For more information, visit www.ridebt.org or call 443-1500.

Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. A photo ID is required to vote.
