Fred-transfer-point

Fredericksburg Regional Transit (FRED) buses will be fare free on Tuesday, November 3rd. The goal through this initiative is to support and increase transit rider voter turnout. “Not having access to transportation or having to bear the burden of an additional transit fare should not be a barrier to voting,” stated Jamie Jackson, Director of Public Transit. “We are a community partner and support our riders who choose to ride our regional transit system every day.” One of FRED Transit’s main goals is to provide accessible transit throughout the region.

Free fares on Election Day will be available for all riders in FRED’s service area, which includes the City of Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania County and Stafford County. Bus routes and schedules are available online at ridefred.com or call 540-372-1222 for information. For information about voting and polling locations please visit online at Elections.Virginia.gov or call your local Voter Registrar’s office.
