Span offers free transportation for veterans living anywhere in Denton County to the Veteran Affairs hospitals in Dallas and Fort Worth.
Funding for these rides is provided in part by the Fund for Veterans Assistance from the Texas Veterans Commission.
How it Works
Service is available Monday through Friday. Rides must be scheduled in advance and veterans must complete a rider application prior to scheduling a ride.
Span picks up veterans at centralized locations throughout Denton County. Click here for a listing of veteran pick-up/drop-off locations.
Home pick-up service may be available to riders with a qualifying disability. Disability must be certified during the rider application process. There may be times of high occupancy that dictate the need for all pick-ups to originate from a common location.
* Rides and pick-up times are subject to availability. Early morning pick-up times may vary from 5:00 to 7:00 am. The estimated arrival time to the Dallas VA is approximately 8:30 to 9:00 am. Span does not guarantee arrival before 9:00 am. Riders must call the Span office the day prior to the scheduled trip between the hours of 5:00 and 5:30 pm to confirm a pick-up time.
