Some plan to drive back home and some would book public transportation such as flights, trains and buses.
For flights, several companies are offering discounts and extra trips during the general election week.
However, flight tickets aren’t always the cheapest option. They’ll increase the prices a bit during peak seasons like this because it’s the nature of the business.
However, you can count on trains and buses to remain their prices. The only problem with that option is their availability. Most tickets are sold out during peak seasons.
Don’t worry, KTMB’s preparing more trains
