VA offers free transportation on Wednesdays to veterans

The Veterans Transportation Network is a free courtesy transportation service on Wednesdays provided through a partnership with Veterans Affairs, AMVETS and Disabled American Veterans and volunteers representing veterans, civic, fraternal organizations and individuals.

To be eligible, veterans must qualify for VA transportation, be enrolled in the VA medical care system with a scheduled appointment unless otherwise authorized by a coordinator, and be ambulatory or travel with an authorized caregiver.

Space on the van is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Trips may be canceled due to low ridership, driver availability or weather conditions. To schedule a free ride, contact the Veterans Transportation Network ride coordinator at (530) 573-3375, ext. 5960.

To volunteer to serve as van coordinator or van driver, call Cheryl Rieniets, VA voluntary services specialist, at (775) 786-7200.
