Catch the Comet to Vote!
Thursday, October 22nd, 2020
The Central Midlands Regional Transit Authority (The COMET) wants to help riders exercise their right to vote. Presently, all The COMET and DART travel is free of charge. Funding from the CARES Act continues to help offset revenue not being collected from fares. Older adults and those with disabilities may also call 803.255.7123 for DART services.
“We realize the importance of people having a voice in the political process and The COMET wants to ensure that transportation is available to help those needing a ride to the polls,” said John Andoh, Executive Director/CEO of The COMET. “Just knowing what bus or route to take to your destination is the first step in that process.”
The following is a listing of The COMET Routes going to satellite polling locations for early absentee in-person voting:
The COMET will continue to run fare free up to and beyond election day until further notice. The COMET can also take riders to their precinct on election day, November 3. Riders can plan their trip by downloading and using the Transit App. For more information regarding routes, please visit www.catchthecomet.org/routes or call us at 803.255.7100.
