The city of El Monte announced Sunday that it is providing free Fiesta Taxi rides to any resident over the age of 18 to an essential business in the city, medical location or testing site, at the San Gabriel Airport.

The service will operate Monday through Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. the city reported. Residents who need transportation to medical appointments can get rides beginning at 4 a.m.

Residents needing taxi rides must call 888-710-3392, give the agent a pickup and drop-off location and show a valid ID to the driver, the city reported.

Caretakers may also accompany the rider but riders are limited to two. Riders should also let the agent know if the rider is wheelchair bound and needs a van.

Riders are also encourage to wear personal protective equipment and Fiesta drivers will provide face masks to those riders who don’t have one.

More information is available from Debbie Ascencion from Fiesta Taxi at 310-508-9849.
