As the Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Disability Assistance and Memorial Affairs and a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, it is critical to me that all veterans are able to access the medical care they have earned and deserve. This includes veterans who either cannot afford personal transportation or are unable to transport themselves due to disabilities. If you need assistance getting to your medical appointments, I encourage you to learn more about the free transportation programs provided by the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC), the Disabled American Veterans (DAV), and the VA Southern Nevada Healthcare System (VASNHS).
•All appointments are scheduled on a first come first serve basis and space is limited
•Services are available to all veterans, however, those with personal transportation are encouraged to save room for those who require transportation assistance
•Please schedule your transportation appointment ahead of time to help ensure availability
