Good news for some voters who don’t have any transportation on election day from Regina Transit.
They say they are offering voters free ride to the polls on Wednesday. People just have to tell their driver they need to travel on the bus to vote.
A special shuttle had already been offered to those on the western edge of Ward 6 who had to cast their ballot at the Eastview Community Centre, but Regina transit says buses marked Charter Poll 17 will run from Albert Community School, starting at 9 a.m., and will pick up every 15 minutes at each stop.
The last bus will depart Albert Community School at 7:30 p.m.
The first return bus will leave Eastview Community Centre at 9:30 a.m. and drop off to each stop every 15 minutes. The last bus will depart the polling station at 8:15 p.m.
Meanwhile, the city is giving out numbers for advance polls, and it would appear as if there is more interest from the last election four years ago.
The city says almost 73-hundred ballots were cast in last week’s advance poll which is an increase of 31 and a half percent from the 2012 election.
