Veterans’ Ride Connect is a ground-breaking cooperative agency of transit providers who work together to provide veterans with safe, reliable and local transportation services across 29 counties in eastern Oklahoma. In 2018, their partners provided more than 16,000 trips for veterans and continue to collaborate and build partnerships with other transit services throughout the eastern half of the state. All of the Veterans’ Ride Connect transit agencies use ADA-compliant vehicles, including minivans and shuttle buses, and are operated by drivers who are highly trained in wheelchair securement and all other aspects of transit safety.
