FREE Van Rides to VA Medical Facilities
Morrow County Veterans Service Commission
provides free transportation to local VA medical facilities
for veterans of Morrow County. These include facilities in Columbus and
Marion. We provide transportation to Cleveland, Dayton, Chillicothe and
Cincinnati but ONLY with approval from the CVSO. With prior notification,
spouses may accompany you if we have space available.
When scheduling your appointment,
we ask that you notify the VA Medical Center that you are a van
rider and request a morning appointment Monday-Thursday. Please
notify us as soon as possible after you have scheduled your appointment.
If you have a specialty appointment
on other days or times, please notify us and we will do everything
possible to honor your request on a case by case basis.
Information We'll Need
We will need to know the following
when you call for travel arrangements:
- The VA Medical Center where
you have your appointment
- The date and time of your appointment
- The department or doctor you
will be seeing
About Your Trip
We will call you the day before your
appointment to verify your ride and give you a time to meet us.
Our vans leave early each morning and sometimes the trip may go
past lunch time. Therefore, you may want to be sure to have a book/magazine
and money for snacks or lunch. Please be prepared for an all day
trip JUST IN CASE.
In the case of bad weather, a driver
may determine not to make the trip. In that case, you will need
to call the VA reschedule your appointment.

Policy and List of Pickup Points.
