Free 30-Minute Bublr Bike Rides on Election Day

TomorrowTuesday, November 3rd, on Fall General Election Day, Bublr Bikes will be continuing their tradition of offering free rides on Election Day by offering a free 30-minute ride to all community members to encourage voter turnout. The purpose of the initiative is to provide free transportation to citizens who might not have a personal vehicle to make it to their preferred polling site, but who still wish to cast their ballot on Election Day. Bublr Bikes has 84 stations and more than 700 bikes located around Milwaukee, Wauwatosa, and West Allis.

“Bublr Bikes is providing a great opportunity for all citizens who may not be fortunate enough to have a vehicle at their disposal on Election Day,” Common Council President Cavalier Johnson said. “This initiative is a fantastic way to promote voter turnout tomorrow, and I am encouraging anyone who may not have viable transportation on Election Day to take advantage of this free ride and go vote!”

If you are planning to check out a Bublr Bike tomorrow, there are some important things to note before checking a bike out. First, no code is needed to enjoy a free 30-minute ride on Election Day, and the free ride ends when the bike is returned to a Bublr Bikes station. Individual rides over 30 minutes will cost $3 for each additional 30 minutes. Although users will not be charged Tuesday for rides 30 minutes and under, a credit or debit card is required to check out a Bublr Bike and a $10 hold is placed the first time you check out a bike.

Voters can find their voting location at myvote.wi.gov and a map of Bublr Stations and polling locations at www.bublrbikes.org/free-bublr-bike-rides-election-2020/.
