Purpose: To provide transportation for veterans to and from the VA Medical Centers throughout Oklahoma.
Eligibility: Veterans who need transportation to their VA authorized medical appointments. The veteran must be able to enter and exit the vans with NO ASSISTANCE. The vans are not handicap accessible.
Appointments: All transportation requests must be scheduled with the Hospital Service Coordinator in your area.
Rules and Regulations: All passengers must have an authorized VA medical appointment. All travel requests will be made in advance with the HSC office. There is no smoking, chewing tobacco, drinking, food, foul language, weapons, drugs, or any illegal activity allowed on the vans. Seat belts will be used at all times. All passengers must be ready at the appointed times. The vans will not make personal side trips. Any veteran utilizing the vans will not be eligible for reimbursement through the VA travel reimbursement program. Any passenger who violates any of the regulations will be denied travel.
Comments: The DAV Transportation Network needs volunteer drivers at each location. If you would like to volunteer please contact the HSC Office closest to you. Volunteer drivers do not receive payments for the services they provide.
How you can help: In 2006 the Department of Oklahoma helped more than 40,000 veterans reach their medical appointments and dispersed more than $180,000 for services that directly benefited disabled veterans. The DAV Transportation network relies soley on donations from the public and contributions from our National Headquarters to fund our programs. Please help us help our veterans by sending a donation to the Department of Oklahoma, ATTN: Transportation. Your donations are tax deductible.
