The Veterans Transportation Coordinator (VTC) can provide free transportation to Roudebush VA Medical Center and all VA Clinics please call as soon as you get your appointment from the VA.  The VTC requires at least three (3) days’ notice to ensure we have a driver available.  When using transportation you will be asked to arrive at the Armory two (2) hours prior to Roudebush VA Medical Center appointment and one (1) hour prior for all VA Clinic appointments.  If more than one (1) Veteran is using transportation we leave to make first Veterans appointment time and come back after the last appointment is over.

If you wish to become enrolled in the VA System you will need to bring in a copy of your DD214 and a valid photo ID and we will schedule you for a ride to the VA to be enrolled.
