MALVERN, PA — In an effort to support the Chester County Department of Health’s vaccine program, the Transportation Management Association of Chester County (TMACC) and its partners have announced a free ride on its Chescobus lines for people returning from getting their shot.
The Chescobus program, which includes the SCCOOT and LINK buses serving both western and southern Chester County, will offer free, same-day return trips to individuals of any age who use the transportation service to ride to and from one of the Chester County Health Department’s senior center walk-in vaccination clinics.
“TMACC is pleased to partner with the Chester County Commissioners and the Chester County Health Department to support vaccination efforts in the county,” said TMACC Executive Director Tim Phelps. “We encourage everyone, especially those who use public transportation, to get vaccinated, and we would like to remind our riders that a mask mandate is still in place.”
The Oxford Senior Center will be offering one-shot J & J vaccines on Mondays between 10:00 am and 1:00 pm. The SCCOOT bus stops at the Oxford Transportation Center, just three short blocks from the senior center located at 12 E. Locust Street.
The Coatesville Area Senior Center will be offering one-shot J & J vaccines on Wednesdays and Fridays between 10:00 am and 1:00 pm. The LINK bus service stops less than one block from the senior center, located at 250 E. Harmony Street.
Rides for individuals 65+ are always free. Anyone using the bus service to get vaccinated can show their vaccine card to the bus driver to receive their free return trip. Masks are required on all public transportation, per TSA security directive.
