“Go Vets” program make it easier for veterans to get around

MEDFORD, Ore. —The “Go Vets” program helps local veterans find ways of getting around.

The program’s focus is on giving vets accessibility to healthcare services, employment opportunities, and recreational activities.

More than 350 veterans currently use the service.

“A lot of veterans were missing their medical appointments and job opportunities as well as recreational opportunities to get reintegrated into the community so we want to show them the resources that are available to them here,” said Bryan Simpson, Veterans Travel Trainer with RVTD.

Veterans learn to ride RVTD’s fixed-route system and how to travel safely and independently.
