(TOLEDO, March 18, 2021) – The Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority (TARTA) is announcing a new free Vaccine Ride Program with services available in Maumee, Ottawa Hills, Rossford, Sylvania, Sylvania Township, Toledo and Waterville. The Vaccine Ride Program offers two options to residents needing transportation to a vaccination site:
Funding for these free services is made possible by a recent grant award of $266,713 from the Ohio Department of Transportation through Governor Mike DeWine’s Rides for Community Immunity program. A total of $7 million will be distributed to all 88 counties to help get Ohio’s most vulnerable populations transportation to vaccine locations. Service costs will also be covered by federal funds through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.
“This is just one more opportunity to showcase that public transit plays a critical role as a pillar in the community,” said TARTA CEO Kimberly Dunham. “TARTA reacted quickly to the Health Department’s call for transportation assistance and will be able to use this new grant funding to help move people to vaccination sites.”
TARTA will continue to follow its COVID-19 Rider Safety Guidelines which include requiring passengers to wear a facial covering, limiting the number of passengers per vehicle and no fare collection. For a complete list of the Rider Safety Guidelines, visit tarta.com/coronavirus.
