Transportation to the Veterans Affairs Medical Center

We provide transportation to the Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) in Lebanon, on select days during the week. The ride departs from Lancaster at 8 a.m., and departs from the VAMC at approximately 12:30 p.m.   Click here to send an email requesting VA Transportation.  

Transportation to Lebanon VAMC is available only to veterans showing proof of an appointment.

Notice: If a veteran is screened at the VAMC as symptomatic for an illness with high transmission probability, that veteran will NOT be afforded a return trip to Lancaster and must find their own transportation back.  This is essential to safeguard other at-risk veterans and our drivers.
