Chapter 3 TYPICAL TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS FOR VETERANS There are eight major types of transportation services typically available for veterans; the first four listed below are offered through the VA. Despite these potential options, individual communities may have only a few of these choices available. Each mode of transportation service that veterans use to travel is described in this chapter with examples if applicable. The eight major veteran transportation options are: 1. Veterans drive to VA Medical Centers. 2. Veterans receive transportation from nonprofit veterans' service organizations, including the DAV and other veterans' organizations. 3. VAMCs directly operate vehicles. 4. VAMCs contract with transportation vendors. 5. Veterans use county-provided services. 31
