Free rides to vaccination sites expanded for New Yorkers

One of the aspects of living in the city that required me to adapt was the impossibility of having a car in Manhattan. Most of my life is lived within easy walking distance. Occasionally I take a bus or the subway. But I haven’t owned a car for 20 years — and I’m not unique in NYC.

Even with the many vaccination sites available in the city, there are places almost impossible to reach for seniors, children, and adults with disabilities. This is a great service that removes that obstacle to getting vaccine put in your arm.

Free Rides to Vaccination Appointments for NYC Seniors, Children and Adults with Disabilities

MAR 25, 2021

Hi,

In partnership with the City of New York, we are thrilled to announce that we have expanded the eligibility group for free rides to and from COVID-19 vaccination sites. In addition to senior residents ages 65+, we can now book free rides for children and adults ages 16-64 with disabilities.

Please forward this to anyone you know in need.

What you need to know

Residents ages 65+, children and adults with disabilities ages 16-64, who cannot travel for their vaccine are eligible for free vaccine transportation services to and from vaccination sites with Curb-powered taxi services. Eligible passengers can request to be picked up anywhere in the five boroughs and taken to any vaccination site within the City.

How do you get a ride?

It’s easy. Call 877-VAX-4NYC to make an appointment at a vaccination site or go check out NYC COVID-19 Vaccine Finder. After booking an appointment to get vaccinated, participants will be screened and directed to Curb’s 24/7 call center to book their trips or ambulette services as appropriate.

Taxi safety

All vaccination trips in Curb taxis have partitions; all cabs are routinely cleaned and disinfected as outlined by the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission. Masks are required for all riders & drivers.

If you have any questions, please call 877-VAX-4NYC.

Don’t forget to share this with anyone you know who is having difficulty traveling to a vaccination site.
