Veterans Mobility Corps Vet 2 Vet Program
The Veterans Mobility Corps is a Vet-to-Vet program providing free assistance for all military veterans who cannot drive due to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or other disabilities, or would like to learn how to ride public transit.
Veteran Volunteers (who are military veterans themselves) can assist you to maintain your mobility and independence by teaching you to ride public transit and access other alternatives to driving, such as community shuttles.
Veteran Volunteers are carefully screened and trained to work with veterans of any age, and with a variety of disabilities. In addition to conducting one-to-one and group rider training, Veteran Volunteers are also available to give educational presentations and organize group trips on transit to popular destinations.
Veterans learn to ride SamTrans, BART, Caltrain, VTA and other public transit systems in the Bay Area, and stay active, connected and independent.
