The Program’s first 15-passenger van went into operation during November, 2001.

The Jewish War Veterans Association check is the second largest donation on record to the Veterans Transportation Program. The Program will be going out to bid on its fourth van/bus during January, 2017. It is not a taxpayer-funded service, but is supported by the VA Medical Center in Coatesville with government license plate tags in addition to fuel, maintenance, repairs and insurance.
