Facilitating Access to Coordinated Transportation (FACT), a San Diego County nonprofit, announces a free transportation promotion specifically for San Diego Veterans.
From September 1 through December 31, 2017, Veterans will be able to schedule free transportation on RideFACT, a transportation service operated by FACT, anywhere within urban and suburban San Diego County. In addition to meeting the current needs of Veterans for rides, FACT hopes to get a better understanding of the mobility needs and potential demand for transportation in our San Diego Veterans’ community.
During this 4-month period, all San Diego County Veterans will be able to reserve one free round trip per week, for any purpose, anywhere within the RideFACT service area. Rides may be requested one to seven days ahead of the travel date. There is no registration or qualification process for this service, nor age or income criteria. Reservations may be made over the telephone and the process takes only a few minutes. Companions that are not Veterans may be accommodated on a space available basis.
