Detroit contracts with IntelliRide again to offer rides to TCF Center vaccine site, shares doses with Meijer

  • Date: 02/09/2021

The city of Detroit continues to work to expand access to COVID-19 vaccines to residents, offering $2 or free rides, adding weekend appointments at churches and sharing its doses with Meijer's city locations.

The city has started offering rides for those eligible for vaccines who don't have cars through a contract with the transportation coordinator it relied for the Michigan State Fairgrounds COVID-19 test site.

IntelliRide Inc., a subsidiary of global transit provider Transdev, is coordinating local drivers to shuttle people getting vaccines to the city's mass vaccination center at TCF Center's garage downtown. For the past month at the drive-through site, people couldn't make appointments unless they had a car or someone with a car to take them.
