Beginning Monday, March 1, the County of Lackawanna Transit System (COLTS) will offer FREE Shared Ride service to any members of the community who need transportation to and from their scheduled COVID-19 vaccination appointments within Lackawanna County.

“I am pleased that COLTS is able to offer this important service,” said COLTS’ Executive Director Bob Fiume. “COLTS is committed to ensuring that transportation is not a barrier for people to get vaccinated and we are prepared to assist people in reaching their vaccine appointments.”

Advance reservations for service are required and service is available from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Residents will need to call the Shared Ride department at (570) 963-6795 no later than NOON on the business day prior to their appointment. COLTS’ staff members will assist individuals with this process.

When scheduling a Shared Ride trip to a vaccination site, riders must have a confirmed COVID-19 appointment at the location to which they are requesting transportation.
