Volunteers drive local Veterans to and from medical appointments and other necessary trips, using their own vehicle with supplemental liability insurance from RSVP, and $0.40/mile reimbursement for up to 300 miles driven per month. Riders must be ambulatory or bring a caregiver to assist them in getting in and out. Trips may be local or to a VA Hospital including Jamaica Plain, West Roxbury, or Brockton.
