To help “Get the Vote Out,” Manatee County Area Transit (MCAT) is offering free fixed route bus service on primary election day, Tuesday, March 17, 2020, including the MCAT Route 99 buses that travel into Sarasota County. Handy Bus clients can ride free if travelling to or from a designated polling location and presenting their valid Voter Identification Card, in conjunction with a pre-scheduled passenger trip.

The Manatee County Board of County Commissioners approved free fixed route bus rides throughout the service day on March 17, 2020 to encourage area voters to participate in the electoral process.
