KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Ride KC will provide free transportation to a mass COVID-19 vaccination site at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri, Friday and Saturday.

The shuttle is only available to people with proof they have an appointment to receive their vaccine at the event.

The shuttle will pick up and drop off riders at eight locations beginning at 8 a.m. each day. Riders must wear a face mask.

Organizers said riders will remain on the shuttle once arriving at Arrowhead and will receive their vaccine while seated on the bus. Organizers believe it will be the first time a bus has participated in a drive-thru COVID-19 vaccination event in Missouri.

“We’re excited about that — to be the model of how we can do this with public transportation,” said Petrina Parker, Ride KC’s marketing and communications manager.

The eight shuttle stops include:

  • Linwood YMCA, 3800 Linwood Blvd.
  • Macedonia Baptist Church, 1700 Linwood Blvd.
  • Black Archives of Mid America, 1722 E 17th Ter.
  • Guadalupe Center (Pre-K facility), 5123 E Truman Rd.
  • Cleaver Family YMCA, 7000 Troost Ave.
  • St. James United Methodist Church, 5540 Wayne Ave. (Bus stops on Paseo)
  • Brush Creek Community Center, 3801 Emanuel Cleaver II Blvd.
  • Southeast Community Center, 4201 E 63 St.
