Transportation Services to VA Medical Centers
- The Beneficiary Travel (BT) program reimburses eligible veterans for costs incurred while traveling to and from VA health care facilities. The BT program may also provide pre-approved transportation solutions and arrange special mode transportation (SMT) at the request of the VA. Veterans may be eligible for common carrier transportation (such as bus, taxi, airline, or train) under certain conditions.
- The Veterans Transportation Service (VTS) provides safe and reliable transportation to Veterans who require assistance traveling to and from VA health care facilities and authorized non-VA health care appointments. VTS also partners with service providers in local communities to serve veterans' transportation needs.
Transportation for Seniors
