BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Golden Empire Transit reminds riders that the transit system’s bus routes can get you to a COVID-19 vaccination site.
“A lack of transportation should not be a barrier to getting the COVID-19 vaccine” Karen King,
CEO of Golden Empire Transit said in a statement. “Every person who wants the vaccine should get it, and transportation should not be a barrier.”
GET has various services that run directly to a vaccination site near you, officials said. GET on demand curb-to-curb services, on-demand paratransit and fixed routes can get you to a vaccination site.
For example, GET routes 21, 22 and 82 all make stops at the CSU Bakersfield campus where it is hosting a vaccination site. Route 44 takes you near the Kern County Fairgrounds where it is hosting its mass vaccination site.
