Five Cheap Rides to the Polls When You Don’t Own a Car

Make sure transportation isn’t an issue for when you cast your ballot in Montgomery County.  Here are five ways to ride to the polls for free, or at an affordable price.

  1. Bike to your polling location. Download the Capital Bikeshare App on your phone and unlock the free 24 hour pass. The pass is valid for “unlimited 30 minute rides” on Election Day. (Don’t forget to wear a helmet!)

2. Take a free “Motivate” Bike.  Motivate is Lyft’s bike sharing program. Just use the code “BIKETOVOTE.”

3. Take a Lyft.  Lyft is offering 50% off your ride to the polls on election day.  Get your promotional code here.

4. Take an Uber! Not only is Uber offering $10 discounts on rides to the polls, they are also making it easier to use the application to find your polling location.

5. If you live in Silver Spring, take a free Lime scooter or bike. Download their app, use the code LIME2VOTE18, and take a free 30-minute ride to your polling location

Make sure you have a plan before casting your vote tomorrow!
