“Rides 4 TX Heroes,” is a free transportation program for Veterans, their spouses, widows/widowers of spouses, and Dependents in the Alamo Region.
As transportation can be a challenging barrier for many in accessing benefits and services in the Alamo region, AACOG has collaborated with the Texas Veterans Commission to provide free rides to Veterans and their immediate family members.
The program is available throughout the 13-county AACOG Region, including Atascosa, Bandera, Bexar, Comal, Frio, Gillespie, Guadalupe, Karnes, Kendall, Kerr, McMullen, Medina, and Wilson Counties. The rides can be used for a variety of purposes – grocery shopping, medical appointments, prescription pick-ups, visiting government offices, job interviews, education, and other essential transportation needs. Five to seven days’ notice is normally required to schedule rides once the Veteran has registered for the program.
For questions or to register for the program, please visit www.txveteransnetwork.com, or call our toll-free number 888-SA4 VETS (888 724 8387). For more information, visit http://aacog.com/495/Veteran-Programs
The Rides 4 TX Heroes program goal is to provide military members, veterans and family members with transportation and other supportive services assistance through TX Veterans Network (formerly TXServes San Antonio). We are eager and available to accept Veteran applicants! The Rides 4 TX Heroes program is supported by a grant from the Texas Veterans Commission Fund for Veterans’ Assistance, which provides grants to organizations serving veterans and their families.
