Tyler VA clinic given bus to transport vets to Dallas for medical treatment

Posted: Updated:

TYLER (KYTX) -Tyler veterans now have a free and easy way to get back and forth to Dallas for medical treatment. 

A couple of weeks ago, thanks to funds from the North Texas VA Healthcare System, the Tyler VA Clinic were given a bus.

It provides transportation for veterans back and forth from Tyler to Dallas, Fort Worth, and Bonham for medical treatment.

"There's nothing more stressful knowing they need to be in  Dallas but don't' have the transportation to get there, will  greatly alleviate those pressures," said clinic operation administrator Lehebron Farr.

Over time, the VA hopes to extend transportation services to include picking up veterans at their homes in Tyler.
