Sun Metro is making it easy for El Pasoans to get to their vaccination appointments by offering free rides.

No transportation, No problem.

Sun Metro is doing its part by helping El Pasoans get vaccinated as soon as possible, eliminating any barriers, including transportation issues that might prevent anyone from getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

Vaccines have been slowly rolling out, but with more vaccines on the way, more El Pasoans, especially senior citizens, are encouraged to register for the vaccine.

To help ease transportation, Sun Metro began offering the free service to COVID-19 vaccination sites across the city on Monday.

Free rides are available to the following sites in El Paso:

  • 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 - individuals 75 years old and older)

Boarding Details:

  • To ride for free, passengers will need to show proof of appointment to the operator.
  • El Paso residents automatically receive their vaccination appointment once they register and obtain an official confirmation via an email, 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 days and times.

Residents, especially senior citizens 70+ looking to get registered for the COVID-19 vaccine, can learn more at EPcovidVaccine.com or call 915-212-6843.
