One North Shore taxi company says it’s willing to pick up the tab for anyone voting in that area today.
North Shore Taxi says rides can be provided to people who need to vote in the District of West Vancouver, District of North Vancouver, and the City of North Vancouver until polls close (at 7:00 pm local time) for free.
Riders will be able to charge an account with the code “7171 Election 2015.”
Anyone using the company’s phone app can also have their ride covered if they put in the message “Charge to 7171 ELECTION 2015” in the field labelled “Additional Info For Driver.”
The company says they won’t be able to provide rides to polling stations outside of the North Shore.
