DAVENPORT, Iowa — Davenport's Citibus will now be offering free transportation to people visiting the Genesis Health System vaccination clinic.

Starting Tuesday, April 27, the city's Transit Division will be offering free rides to the clinic at the former Dick's Sporting Goods location in Davenport for both its walk-in service and schedules vaccine appointments.

“We encourage interested individuals to visit the TransLoc website at https://davenportcitibus.transloc.com/ for transit routes that connect to the Elmore Avenue shopping corridor," says Davenport Transit Operations Manager Marla Miller. 

Going on to explain the process, she adds, "This is not an on-demand service but a free fare service to encourage anyone who does not have access to transportation to take advantage of the availability of the vaccination and the free ride. Get on the Davenport Citibus, state that your destination is the COVID-19 Vaccination Center on Elmore Avenue, and your fare is free during this time period.”

The Genesis clinic offers walk-in vaccinations on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. but also welcomes appointments.
