The City of Windsor is waiving the fare costs on Transit Windsor buses for anyone travelling to or from a COVID-19 mass-vaccination clinic appointment.
“We don’t want transportation to be a barrier for anyone,” said Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens. “By waving the usual fare, we can help provide one more way those in need can get where they need to go.”
Please note: the free ride is not a special bus dropping riders right at a mass-vaccination clinic; it is regular Transit Windsor service that riders can use to get to the area where the vaccination clinic is located and where they have an appointment.
“We ask that riders simply let the driver know they’re going to the clinic to get vaccinated, so we can keep track for future funding support,” said Transit Windsor Executive Director Tyson Cragg.
The free service to and from a mass-vaccination clinic area includes the county municipalities serviced by Transit Windsor.
