Veterans Transportation Resources
Many veterans and their families transitioning to employment in civilian life are in need of transportation options that support their commute to work or training opportunities. Innovative supports such as reduced fares, transit passes or ride sharing offered in partnership with transit agencies and veteran support agencies can connect service members and their families to jobs, education and other quality of life destinations.
