Local veterans seeking care at the VA Bedford Healthcare System will soon have access to a free door to door ride service with the launch of the new MeVa Transit VA
Starting on January 2, 2024, the VA Bedford mediMeVa will operate Wednesdays and Fridays by reservation with one trip to Bedford in the morning and one return in the afternoon. This is a door to door shared ride service. Veterans will be picked up at their homes or other origination point within MeVa’s service area and ride with others to Bedford. The hours of the service are flexible and will vary depending on the appointment times of the riders. All Veterans and their families, regardless of age or ability, who reside in one of the 16 cities and towns in MeVa’s service area, are eligible to use this service. Sign up is easy by simply calling the miniMeVa office at 978-469-6878 option #3. Reservations must be made at least one week (7 days) in advance, and may be made no more than 14 days in advance. When making reservations, riders should be prepared to provide the reservationists with the date of travel, the pick-up location, and the time of the appointment.
Like all of MeVa’s transportation services, the VA Bedford mediMeVa is completely free.
