Veterans Medical Transportation Network for Senior & Disabled Veterans (VMTN)
The Veterans Medical Transportation Network for Senior & Disabled Veterans (VMTN) provides effective and efficient transportation for veterans and their dependents to and from medical appointments, such as at U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) clinics, primary care physicians and the Veterans Medical Center.
If you are eligible to receive treatment through the VA Southern Nevada Healthcare System (VASNHS) (https://www.lasvegas.va.gov/patients/eligibility.asp), then you are eligible for VMTN. You and your dependents must have a valid ID card when registering for the program and when boarding vehicles. Valid ID cards include: Veterans Affairs ID, Military ID (DD 214), Military Dependent ID (DD1173), and VA Healthcard.
Veterans and their caregivers, along with qualified dependents, can use the service for any medical appointment in the VMTN service area. The network provides transportation to:
- VA Southern Nevada Healthcare System (medical center) – 6900 N. Pecos Road
- Northwest Primary Care Clinic – 3968 N. Rancho Drive
- Southwest Primary Care Clinic – 7235 Buffalo Drive
- Southeast Primary Care Clinic – 1020 S. Boulder Highway
- Northeast Primary Care Clinic – 4445 E. Charleston Blvd.
- Mike O’Callaghan Federal Hospital – 4700 N. Las Vegas Blvd.
- Nellis Air Force Base at designated drop-off and pick-up areas only*
*When scheduling your reservation, please ask the representative where you may be dropped off at Nellis Air Force Base.
Since Veterans and Department of Defense medical facilities may not provide for all medical needs, transportation is also available to other medical facilities including doctor’s offices, hospitals and rehabilitation clinics, as approved by the VA.
Please note: VMTN transportation services are intended for medical use only. Unauthorized use of VMTN transportation services can result in a suspension of service. RTC staff reserves the right to make the final determination regarding what qualifies as a valid medical use of this service.
