DANVILLE, Va. (WDBJ) - Danville Transit will begin offering transportation services for seniors who wish to get the COVID-19 vaccinations.

Beginning Thursday, April 8, the transit system will pre-register and schedule free door-to-door services to get seniors to the Danville mall’s vaccination site.

The city said funding is provided through a grant with the Southern Area Agency on Aging. People must be 60-years-of-age or older to receive service.

Danville Transit has served as a senior transportation contractor since October of 2012. Funding from the Older Americans Act helps offer transportation services for seniors to take medical, shopping and recreational trips.
