Transportation Services

In partnership with the City of Jacksonville, the Florida Department of Health for Duval County and other health service organizations, the Jacksonville Transportation Authority provides safe, clean and reliable transportation to available COVID-19 vaccination distribution locations.

Transportation Services

The JTA has bus routes and on-demand services that provide convenient access to several COVID-19 vaccination locations in Jacksonville.

JTA’s ReadiRide service provides affordable, on-call transportation to vaccination locations. To provide additional support to the community during COVID-19 vaccine distribution, we have expanded the coverage of our ReadiRide zones. Applicable zones are listed under each location below. Call (904) 679-4555 to confirm your eligibility and to make a reservation (Monday through Saturday, 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.) to get you to and from your vaccination appointment.

The safety and health of our customers and employees is a top priority at the JTA. All JTA services, including our buses and ReadiRide service, are regularly cleaned and sanitized throughout the day. We ask our customers to wear masks when riding on all our vehicles and in our facilities and to maintain social distancing.

TSA Update 4/18/22

Due to an April 18th court ruling, effective immediately, TSA will no longer enforce its Security Directives and Emergency Amendment requiring mask use on public transportation and transportation hubs. TSA will also rescind the new Security Directives that were scheduled to take effect tomorrow. CDC continues to recommend that people wear masks in indoor public transportation settings at this time.

Therefore the JTA will no longer require mask use on JTA vehicles or inside its facilities effective immediately.
