In an effort to accommodate voters on Election Day, Manatee County Commissioners took action to suspend fares on MCAT buses and trolleys on Aug. 26 and Nov. 4, 2014. Passengers will be allowed to ride for free all day long. Buses and trolleys will not deviate from their established fixed-routes or schedules.
Paratransit riders are asked to call (941) 748-2317 in advance to schedule a ride to their polling location.
