COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Envida, a Colorado Springs nonprofit, is providing free rides to and from COVID vaccination appointments for El Paso County residents.
These rides are for anyone who has a scheduled appointment and Envida will pick them up at their home and take them home after their vaccination. The rides will run throughout the day Monday through Saturday, for approximately 12 hours a day.
CEO of Envida, Gail Nehls, says it's "primarily targeted at people that are having trouble getting access to their appointment, whether its transportation difficulties getting in and out of cars, or even getting a car, or getting people to drive them to an appointment."
To get access to the service, Envida has set up a transportation hotline for you to call: 719-600-2221.
