SPOKANE, Wash.— Spokane Transit Authority is extending its ‘Free Ride to Vaccines’ program through the rest of June.

The service was set to end June 12, but STA is extending it to June 30.

STA says the extension follows the White House’s goal to get as many Americans vaccinated as possible before the Fourth of July. 

The program allows for people to schedule COVID-19 appointments to and from their desired location. Once someone gets their first vaccine, a second free ride after June 30 is available to receive their second dose of the vaccine.

STA Paratransit vans will provide transportation for three passengers, sitting six feet away from each other. Passengers are required to wear masks in the vehicle, and vehicles are disinfected in between rides. Customers receiving the vaccine and have appointments can bring one companion with them if desired.

More information and details on the service can be found on the STA website.
