Since November 2001, Bucks County has been providing transportation to veterans to VA Hospitals in Philadelphia and Coatesville. The Transportation Program is overseen by the Buck County Department of Veteran Affairs and has carried over 11,000 veterans free of charge. The bus runs 5 days a week covering all of Bucks County.
The program is unique because it is not a taxpayer funded program, but rather depends on donations and the proceeds from an annual golf outing. In addition, the VA Hospital in Coatesville pays for all maintenance, fuel, and insurance.
