Minneapolis MN Transportation Program

Serving the Twin Cities Metro Area, Washington County, and Northwest Metro VA Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC)

Our team of volunteer drivers and staff pick up Veterans for appointments scheduled between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. (completed no later than 2:30pm) Monday – Friday. When the Veteran is done with their appointments, we ask that they check in at the DAV Transportation Office located at 1-S141 so we can arrange their ride home. We operate on a first come, first serve basis and fill up quickly, so Veterans are encouraged to schedule their rides as early as possible.

Our Metro Transportation Program has 11 vehicles available to get Veterans to get to their VA or referred appointments.

To schedule a ride call Gary Wagner at 612-467-2768.
