Vaccines are currently available free of charge via appointment only. To schedule an appointment visit www.ourshot.in.gov or call 211 for all locations except at Kroger (for Kroger only call 866-211-5320). The Interurban Trolley encourages all passengers get their vaccine as soon as they can, to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and help reopen our community.
The Interurban Trolley will still require facemasks be properly worn by all passengers and transit operators over their nose and mouth while aboard the Interurban Trolley or ADA Access Van. The only exemptions to this are children under the age of two (2), and those with medical exemptions in possession of a signed doctor’s note. These requirements will continue after the Governor’s mask mandate ends on April 6, because the Interurban Trolley as a public transit operator is also subject to the Federal mask requirements from the Center for Disease Control and the Transportation Security Administration that implement Executive Order 13998. Passengers who do not comply with this mask mandate while riding the Interurban Trolley are subject to civil penalties (including fines starting at $250) from the Transportation Security Administration. Wearing masks will protect transit operators and passengers while helping to control the transmission of COVID-19.
