BART is proud to offer transportation to numerous COVID vaccination sites. In fact, the three largest sites in the Bay Area are all accessible by BART. Additionally, there are several smaller sites also offering vaccines. Here's how to take BART or other transit to get there.

Find out if it's your turn

Before you head out to get the vaccine, you'll need to make sure it's your turn. Groups who are at highest risk and older people will go first. Sign up to see when you're eligible at California's My Turn website. Once you've made your appointment, congratulations — you're one step closer to being vaccinated.

BART is offering free rides home to those getting vaccinated at the Oakland Coliseum. While there are long car lines to get vaccinated, pedestrians accessing the vaccination site will have little to no wait. Take BART to Coliseum and walk ten minutes to the Oakland Coliseum parking lot. If you need assistance with the walk, BART has ensured help will be available.

Other options

If you're not able to get an appointment at the mass vaccination sites, call your local pharmacy to see if they're offering the vaccine and to whom. Several pharmacies are also offering online appointments, although please note that low vaccine supply means that available appointments are looking scarce right now. Look for pharmacies that are near BART stations, and once you've made an appointment to receive your vaccine, use our Trip Planner to get there.
