Veterans in 15 New Mexico counties are now able to reserve free round-trip rides to and from their homes and any U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs or VA approved medical appointments. The “Highly Rural Veterans Transportation Program” has resumed and now offers the free service to veterans living in counties with no more than seven veterans per every 1,000 residents which includes locally, Catron, Hidalgo, and Sierra counties. DVS has contracted with four transportation companies to provide the round-trip rides. Veterans must contact DVS to make a reservation at least three days before a scheduled appointment at a VA or VA pre-approved medical facility. For more information, visit online at
