The City of Arlington, in partnership with Tarrant County, is pleased to offer free Via rides to Arlington residents with a confirmed COVID-19 vaccine appointment at any of the following sites: Esports Stadium Arlington + Expo Center, Globe Life Field and AT&T Stadium.

Riders will be asked to show proof of their vaccine appointment by text or email to the Via driver.
