COPRUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Corpus Christi Regional Transportation Authority is offering free rides to and from La Palmera Mall's COVID-19 vaccine clinic beginning Thursday. CCRTA said if you're interested in getting vaccinated, all you have to do is let the bus operator know you're going to or coming from the clinic for the free trip.

In addition, CCRTA said B-Line paratransit customers can call (361) 289-5881, to schedule their free trip to or from the clinic. The clinic is at the former Charming Charlie location, near the P.F. Chang's and Grimaldi's in the mall.

“CCRTA is working with the local Public Health District, to prevent transportation and accessibility from being a barrier to our community getting vaccinated,” said CCRTA Chief Executive Officer Jorge G. Cruz-Aedo.

For more information on the free trips, call CCRTA’s Customer Service Center at (361) 883-2287 Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
