The Cincinnati Metro is offering free bus rides to the COVID mass vaccination event at the Cintas Center

The Cincinnati Subway will offer free bus rides later this week, coinciding with a mass vaccination event against COVID-19 planned at the Cintas Center.

The transit authority announced on Tuesday that all routes will offer free rides from March 18-20, as well as a free shuttle service from three nearby bus stops to the main entrance of the Cintas Center:

  • on Montgomery Road and Dana Avenue
  • on Woodburn and Dana Avenues
  • in Xavier University parking lot C-2 and the overflow parking lot

The shuttle runs on all three days from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The Cincinnati subway lines 4, 31, 51 and MetroPlus serve the Cintas Center directly.

“By providing free transportation, we can remove a barrier to those who want to get the vaccine but may not own a vehicle or live near a vaccination site,” said Daryl Haley, Metro CEO, in a press release.

The free rides are subsidized through the nationwide Rides for Community Immunity program run by the Ohio Department of Transportation, along with support from the Ohio Department of Health, the City of Cincinnati, Hamilton County and the Health Collaborative.
