RideKC will provide shuttles for eligible Jackson County residents with appointments to the Mega Vaccination Event at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium on Friday, March 19 and Saturday, March 20. The shuttles are only for people who already have vaccination appointments at the stadium site. Residents who try to board a shuttle without proof of an appointment will not be allowed to board.
The shuttle service starts at approximately 8 a.m. Shuttles will depart for the stadium every thirty minutes from the following locations:
· Linwood YMCA, 3800 Linwood Blvd.
· Macedonia Baptist Church, 1700 Linwood Blvd.
· Black Archives of Mid America, 1722 E. 17th Terrace
· Guadalupe Center (Pre-K facility), 5123 E. Truman Road

· St. James United Methodist Church, 5540 Wayne Ave. (Bus Stop on Paseo)
· Brush Creek Community Center, 3801 Emanuel Cleaver II Blvd.
· Southeast Community Center, 4201 East 63 St.
Residents will receive their vaccinations while on the bus at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium. There will be a short waiting period for monitoring. The shuttles will then return passengers to their pickup location.
The shuttles are zero-fare. Masks are required at the stops and on board buses. The Mega Vaccination Event is expected to operate from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. both Friday and Saturday. Missourians should not try to contact the Jackson County Health Department to sign up for this event as available appointments are being filled using the health department's existing waiting list.
The shuttle service is made possible by a partnership with Missouri Governor Mike Parson, Sen. Barbara Washington and KCATA.
