Texas Veterans Commission Grant Program
Jul 26, 2023
Veterans Ride for Free!
Sun Metro invites veterans and their dependents/spouses to sign up for free rides under a new program made possible through a Texas Veterans Committee General Assistance Grant.
This grant will cover up to a total of $50,000 worth of rides on the Fixed Routes and the LIFT paratransit service. Free rides will start on August 1, 2023. The registration period is now open.
The service will offer rides in the form of 30-day passes and LIFT paratransit rides. Qualified veterans and eligible dependents and spouses can request a new pass within one week of current pass expiration date. The program is subject to funding availability. Funds will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
To apply, veterans and their dependents/spouses can visit bit.ly/VetsRideFree using the button below or call Sun Metro at (915) 212-3333.
Veterans currently receive a discount fare of $1. Sun Metro’s standard fare is $1.50.
This service is supported by a grant from the Texas Veterans Commission Fund for Veterans' Assistance, which provides grants to public transit organizations serving veterans and their families. For information on Veterans assistance offered by the Texas Veterans Commission visit TVC.Texas.gov.
