Profiles in Veterans Transportation

This article describes how innovative transportation services for veterans and military personnel in Florida, Minnesota, West Virginia and California's Bay Area offer pragmatic models for communities across the nation to try transit first to improve mobility for veterans. It describes how the Veterans Administration (VA) in 2008, leaders in Seminole County, Florida, were faced with a challenge. Its existing Community-Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) in Sanford was lightly-used and sparsely-staffed. A new facility in Orange City -- about 13 miles to the north -- would offer better services and reach more veterans in need of care. However, the relocation of the CBOC to Orange City would introduce travel difficulties for those veterans utilizing the Sanford clinic. The article describes the planning process for the new facility.
