MONROE COUNTY SENIOR RIDE RESOURCES FOR VOTING DAY

Download printable list (PDF)


RTS
For voters who use RTS, they can take advantage of the early voting location at the old SUNY Brockport Building, 55 St. Paul St., Rochester, NY 14604, across the street from the RTS Transit Center.

  • If someone lives in one of the buildings RTS is providing a bus, they should work with their building manager. The capacity on each bus is limited due to Covid-19, so voters who want to use one of these shuttles need to work with the designated contact.
  • For those who live in areas not well served by RTS buses, RTS is making On Demand vehicles available. Voters who need a ride should call the Board of Elections (BOE) at 585-753-1550. If BOE does not have a way to get them to the polls, they will provide instructions to access On Demand service.
  • People should NOT call RTS directly. They do not have the capacity to coordinate rides.


Medical Motors
Call 585-654-7030

  • Medical Motors will schedule a ride for early voting.
    • Monday, October 26th – Friday, October 30th
  • They will work with people to schedule rides. Space is limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


LYFT
Someone has to download the app.

  • On Election Day (11/3), Lyft is offering 50% off one ride up to $10 to any polling location or dropbox using the code 2020VOTE*.


UBER
Someone has to download the Uber app.

  • It is a simple intake process, but people need to sign the consent and agree to the program protocols. Only 1 person in a car at a time unless 2 people are in the same household. Depends on driver availability in between essential medical appointments. Multiple slots are available at this moment if the person is flexible with the time.
