SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- San Diego’s Metropolitan Transit System and the North County Transit District is offering free transit rides for people needing to get to their COVID-19 vaccine appointments.

The free rides began Thursday. This includes all vaccination sites in the county including Super Vaccination stations, hospitals, and other community immunization locations.

“Our goal is to make sure our region is able to overcome this crisis and do all we can for the health and safety of residents. Offering free rides on transit is a crucial component in that effort,” said Nathan Fletcher, MTS Board Chair and Chair, San Diego County Board of Supervisors.

MTS has created a transit trip planner with vaccine sites to help residents get to their appointments. Rides will be free to and from vaccination sites, seven days per week. However, riders will be required to show a confirmation email of their vaccine appointment.
