Sun Metro Offering Free Rides to COVID-19 Vaccination Sites

EL PASO, Texas — Starting today, Monday, March 8, 2021, Sun Metro will offer free transportation for people traveling to get their COVID-19 vaccine shot.
 
“Offering free rides supports the City’s goals of getting all El Pasoans vaccinated as quickly and as efficiently as possible. Getting to COVID-19 vaccination sites should be easily accessible through public transportation services, eliminating barriers for all members of our community,” said Sun Metro Managing Director Ellen Smyth.
 
Free rides will be offered to these sites:
  • El Paso County Coliseum, 4100 E. Paisano Drive
  • El Paso Convention Center, 1 Civic Center Plaza
  • West Side Vaccination Site, 7400 High Ridge Drive (Super Seniors, i.e., individuals 75 years old and older)
To ride for free, passengers will simply need to show the operator proof of their appointment. Official confirmation of an appointment is automatically provided to residents when they book their appointment, which can be printed or shown to drivers via a mobile device.
 
LIFT passengers who have scheduled appointments to get vaccinated will also need to pre-schedule their pick-up and drop-off accordingly.
