Veterans, please do not let transportation keep you from your VA appointment.
On March 31, 2014, the VA Southern Nevada Healthcare System will begin the new Veterans Transportation Service (VTS), a program which provides transportation for Veterans to and from their outpatient appointments. 

VA Southern Nevada Healthcare System will continue to work hard coordinating Veterans transportation network with several agencies to provide a full service plan. To coordinate your transportation, please call 1-844-859-5074.

Scheduling transportation ahead of appointment time is encouraged. Transportation will be provided from 7:30 AM – 5:00 PM with last daily appointment being scheduled until 4:30 PM.
