V-TAP helps military veterans get to medical appointments with free transportation, including those who require special assistance. The program aims to provide about 1,200 rides to veterans and family members in 2016.
V-TAP was launched in July 2015 by the MORE Foundation, a nonprofit organization, and Quality Transportation Services.
