VaxTransit: Free Rides for COVID-19 Vaccine

Free rides for COVID-19 vaccines help communities build immunity, and rebuild transit ridership.

Updated April 15, 2021 by Stewart Mader

Getting the COVID-19 vaccine shouldn’t require a car. Public transit is essential to vaccine equity for millions who ride buses and trains every day. When this campaign began, just 15 agencies in 9 states provides free rides for vaccines. Now, 450+ agencies in 41 states provide free rides for vaccines to get shots in arms, beat the virus, and build ridership.

Please check with each transit provider directly for additional details, eligibility, and instructions. Know an agency that should be added to this list? Please share details.
