In partnership with Genesee County Department of Veterans Services, the Mass Transportation Authority of Flint and Genesee County is pleased to announce a new transportation program that will offer health and wellness-related transportation to Genesee County veterans and their spouses.
Through its highly successful Rides to Wellness program, MTA will now offer free door-to-door, same-day or pre-scheduled transportation to qualifying veterans. Service will be available for local transportation needs such as medical care or grocery shopping, but also be provided for long-distance trips to VA hospitals and facilities in Saginaw, Ann Arbor, and Detroit.
Veterans and/or veterans’ spouses who are in need of transportation must contact the Department of Veterans Services at 810-257-3068 to establish eligibility. Each veteran is eligible for up to four free trips per month.
“The Mass Transportation Authority appreciates the incredible work that local veterans-serving organizations have done in providing transportation to vets. We recognize, however, there are still unmet transportation needs for those in this community who have served and we look forward to meeting those needs and providing world class service for our veterans,” Ed Benning, MTA General Manager/CEO, stated.
