Free Metro Rides

If you still need a COVID-19 vaccine, many local health departments and pharmacies are scheduling appointments or hosting walk-in clinics. Children ages 12-15 are now eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine.

Cincinnati Metro and Access rides will be free on all routes Friday, July 16 to Sunday, July 18, and Friday, Aug. 6 to Sunday, Aug. 8 for those getting a vaccine. The rides will be funded through the "Rides for Community Immunity" program announced by the Ohio Department of Transportation, which is distributing funds across Ohio's 88 counties to help transport the state's most vulnerable populations to vaccine locations.

Metro is promoting the free rides in partnership with Kroger Health and Kroger's Cincinnati-Dayton division. The organization's pharmacists, nurse practitioners and healthcare technicians have administered more than 400,000 vaccines across the division - and that number continues to increase daily. They created more equitable access to the COVID-19 vaccine through its scheduling tool, walk-in appointments and large-scale vaccination off-site clinics.
