Coastal Ride and the Yellow Cab of Hampton are giving senior citizens free rides to the voting polls in Newport News and Hampton for Election Day Tuesday.

The service is open to registered voters 60 years and older.

All voters need to do is call the Peninsula Agency on Aging and provide their telephone number, pick up address, voting location, and request a pick up time by noon Monday.

“Depending on demand, pick up times may be shuffled, and riders may need to share a cab,” said Frank Azzalina, director of business development for Yellow Cab and Coastal Ride on the Peninsula.

Azzalina also said taxis will pick up seniors, wait for the seniors to cast their ballots at the polling station and riders will be asked to sign a “voucher.”

For more information, or to request a ride contact the Peninsula Agency on Aging at 757-873-0541.
