Trinity Metro is providing free rides for COVID-19 vaccines with presentation of appointment email or text from Tarrant County Public Health.

According to tweet from Tarrant County Judge B. Glen Whitley, free rides in Arlington will begin on March 1.

The service is available for rides to and from all Tarrant County Public Health vaccine locations.

Transportation options include Trinity Metro, Tarrant County Transportation Services, Northeast Transportation Services, Handitrain, and Arlington's Via.

Handitran rides can be scheduled by calling 817-459-3704.

The free Via services can be redeemed online and will allow for two free round-trips to ensure residents receive each dose of the vaccine.

The code to use for a free trip will not be available immediately, so Arlington urges residents in need of a Via ride to request a promo code here as soon as they receive an appointment confirmation.

Once issued, the Via promo code will be sent through email.

Individuals will need to download the Via app and set up an account. Once on the app they will be able to enter the promo code and access a ride to Esports Stadium Arlington + Expo Center, Global Life Field, and AT&T Stadium.

To claim their free ride, participating individuals must present an email or text from Tarrant County Public Health to their driver.
