“Throughout the pandemic, Franklin Transit has continued to provide the community with safe and reliable transit to essential destinations and services,” said Debbie Henry, executive director of The TMA Group, which operates and manages the transportation service. “Ensuring people can securely reach their COVID-19 vaccine appointments is an extension of our ongoing efforts to provide equitable access in Williamson County as well as protect the health and safety of its residents.”
According to the FTA, residents with a scheduled vaccine appointment can receive a free ride during regular service hours from 6:30 a.m.-6 p.m. on weekdays and from 8:30 a.m.-6 p.m. on Saturdays. Routes include areas around downtown Franklin as well as the Williamson Medical Center. A full map of routes can be found here.
As of March 24, all adults 16 and older are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine either through the Williamson County Health Department or through private providers. A full list of vaccine sites is available through vaccinefinder.org.
All riders will be required to wear a face mask while on transit vehicles in accordance with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
