We can get you to your vaccine appointment! Most transit agencies provide free rides to vaccine appointments, so be sure to tell the dispatcher or bus driver the purpose of your ride.
You can schedule dial-a-ride transportation (from your location directly to the vaccine clinic) by calling at least 24 to 48 hours in advance. You will talk to a dispatcher and will give that person your name, location address, and tell them that you need transportation to your COVID-19 vaccine appointment.
Some counties also have fixed bus routes that you can use. When you get on the bus at the bus stop, tell the bus driver that you are going to your vaccine appointment and where it is. They will help you get off at the right stop.
To schedule your ride or to figure out how to use the fixed bus route services, call the county transportation service for the county that you live in.
