If you are 75 years or older and need a ride to get a COVID-19 vaccine, Rural Community Transportation might be able to help.

Free public transportation to vaccine clinics is available to Vermont residents who do not have their own transportation. Rides are coordinated by the Vermont Public Transportation Association. Drivers will use cars, vans or buses. All rides are ADA compliant and will accommodate people living with disabilities.

Make requests at least 48 hours before your vaccine appointment. These rides are subject to the availability of transportation resources, so advance notice is necessary to ensure services will be available.

Rides are only available if you are not sick with COVID-19 (with symptoms or without symptoms) or are not a close contact of someone who has COVID-19. If you recently traveled, you need to follow the current travel quarantine requirements before you can request a ride.

Reach out at info@vptaride.org; 802-442-0629; or toll-free 833-387-7200.
