Prairie Hills Transit and River Cities Public Transit are working together to jump start the VetTrans program throughout South Dakota. The program is designed to assist veterans, veteran's families, and veteran service organizations with their transportation needs.
Prairie Hills Transit Executive Director Barb Cline states, "The VetTrans program is a great way to give back to our heroes for their service to our country. Working in transit for the past 25 years has given me the opportunity to see the benefits public transit provides for veterans in addition to the general public, and this service gives our heroes that independence to maintain and enhance their quality of life."
The VetTrans service is designed specifically to aid veterans in reaching medical appointments, employment, and activities of daily living. This service simplifies the process for veterans to access the transportation service using a toll-free number, online booking, or an informative website.
