LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Needing a ride to vote? There are several ways to get help on Election Day.

The Breonna Taylor Foundation and Louisville Urban League are teaming up to shuttle Jefferson County voters to area voting locations.

Voters in need of transportation can get a ride to the polls from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, space on the bus is limited. For a ride call 502-354-8601 or visit their website to schedule a ride. Masks are required for drivers and passengers.
