Transportation is often an issue for Veterans who seek to receive services from VA hospitals. Through the Volunteer Transportation program we try to eliminate those barriers. The program is supported by the Disabled American Veterans (DAV), all volunteers must be screened and pass certain requirements:
- Complete an application and supporting documentation
- Receieve a driver’s physical and TB test from VA Employee Health (No Charge)
- Get fingerprinted at VA for background check (No Charge)
- Present a valid driver’s license and proof of insurance coverage
These are volunteer (non-paid) positions that often require a full day commitment from the volunteer on the days they are assigned to drive the van.
