In an effort to make voting in Knoxville as easy as possible, Mayor Madeline Rogero and the Knoxville Transportation Authority (KTA) have approved fare-free service on all KAT buses on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. Fare-free service on Election Day will run for the duration of Mayor Rogero’s term through 2019, which will include two additional election days in August and November of 2019 for City elections.

KAT’s Customer Service Counter staff at Knoxville Station, as well as KAT’s information line at 637-3000, are available to help passengers plan trips to the polls. KAT encourages planning ahead and voting early on Election Day, as there are some KAT routes that end service before the polls close. As the City of Knoxville’s transit system, KAT conveniently serves most polling sites within the city. Combining Knoxville polling locations with those outside the city limits, this accounts for 41 of the Knox County Election Commission’s 80 countywide voting sites.
