Rockwall, Texas – As early voting in Rockwall County nears its end date, STAR Transit shows its dedication to public service by providing free round-trip transportation to local election places. This project, which aims to get all registered voters to the polls, covers the whole of STAR Transit service area, making sure that people can get to the polls until the end of early voting on November 3.
As more proof of its support for democratic involvement, the group is offering the free service on November 7, which is Election Day.
All STAR Transit services are available
All of STAR Transit services are available and operational, such as Demand Response, Fixed Routes, and STARNow, to make voting easier for more people. People who use the STARNow app and the code “Vote2023” can get free rides in the STARNow zone or STAR Transit service area. These services depend on being available, and people who want to use them are told to tell bus drivers or reservationists that they are going to vote.
STAR Transit free rides should be reserved at least 30 minutes before the ride
People who want to take advantage of this chance need to plan ahead, because rides need to be reserved at least 30 minutes before they are supposed to leave. During normal work hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., STAR Transit has dedicated agents ready to help with scheduling.
Reservation for free STAR Transit ride can be made by phone or the mobile app
You can make a reservation for a ride by calling (877) 631-5278. The STARNow app, which can be downloaded for free from both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store, lets riders plan rides faster. Help is offered in Spanish, making sure that everyone can use the service.
The early voting program covers the whole STAR Transit service area during the week, but residents of Mesquite and Balch Springs will also be able to use it. In these places, you can also get free transportation to early voting on Saturday, October 28, which can help people who may have scheduling problems during the workday.
Voters can get all the needed information about the voting process on https://www.rockwallvotes.com/. Rockwall residents are encouraged to check the website and find all the voting places in Rockwall County on Election Day.
STAR Transit’s all-around method to getting rid of transportation problems that keep people from voting shows how important it is for everyone to be involved in the democratic process. By giving people free, easy, and accessible rides to the polls, STAR Transit isn’t just moving people; it’s moving Rockwall County toward an involved and fair voting population.
