  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]
  • Found Family Books for the Holidays
    The holidays are quickly approaching and for some of us that means seeing our family. However, family has a loose definition. It could mean blood or who you were raised with.

B.G. Transit provides free rides for vaccination appointments

B.G. Transit offers free rides to and from COVID-19 vaccination events for the public through the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Rides to Community Immunity program.

The B.G. Transit is funded, in part, by the City of Bowling Green, a Community Development Block Grant allocation and grant funding from ODOT and the Federal Transit Administration. 

How to schedule a ride

The City of Bowling Green recommends calling at least 24 hours in advance of a vaccine appointment or mass vaccine distributions like the March 23 Bowling Green Training and Community Center event. Passengers must tell B.G. Transit the ride is for a COVID-19 vaccination to receive free fares to and from eligible locations.

To schedule a ride, call 1-800-579-4299. 

For those with speech and/or hearing impairments, schedule B.G. Transit rides through the Ohio Relay Network at 1-877-750-9097 or 1-800-750-0750, respectively. For passengers with disabilities, B.G. Transit vehicles are accessible.

B.G. Transit runs 6 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday.

How to schedule a vaccine appointment

The Wood County Health Department offers appointments to eligible individuals, which now include people age 50 and older or younger people with type 2 diabetes or end-stage renal disease, through the ArmorVax app. A step-by-step guide on how to use the app is available on WCHD’s website.

Other providers that are offering vaccinations include:

New appointments open every Friday at noon for WCHD and many other providers. Check provider websites for hours and appointment availability.
