Black and White Cabs, Norfolk Checker and Yellow Cab of Norfolk will give free rides to polling places for senior citizens on Nov. 8 in Norfolk and Virginia Beach.

Voters 60 and over who don’t have their own transportation can get a ride by calling senior services at 757-963-9218 by noon on Nov. 7, according to a news release from Frank Azzalina, director of business development for Hampton Roads Transportation.

They will need to provide a telephone number, pickup address, voting location and requested pickup time.

Times may be changed and riders may need to share a cab, depending on demand. The taxis will wait while seniors vote. Anyone taking advantage of the service will be asked to sign a voucher but will not be asked to pay.
