Getting around town just got easier for thousands of area veterans.
Say hello to 211VetLink, a premier source of travel information for veterans on the go. The resource is part of a partnership between 2-1-1 Riverside County, 2-1-1 San Bernardino County and a host of regional transportation agencies. Riverside Transit Agency is proud to be a partner in this important project that provides veterans (and non-veterans) with transportation options to community resources, medical appointments, job interviews, food, shelter and much more. The first of its kind for Southern California, this trip planner takes into consideration not only date and time of trip, but also any special accommodations the rider requires such as curb-to-curb service or driver assistance.
Don’t have access to internet? Plan your next trip by calling 2-1-1 to speak with a friendly community resource advisor in Riverside County or San Bernardino County. The information center is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Riding the bus is easy for veterans. RTA offers discounted fares to veterans and active military members. To qualify, customers must show appropriate ID each time they board a bus. Accepted forms of identification include valid U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs issued ID card or a U.S. Uniformed Services ID card indicating retired status. Active duty military personnel must wear the appropriate uniform at the time of boarding or present to the driver a valid U.S. Unformed Services ID card indicating active service or a Common Access card indicating uniformed services or active duty.
