Veterans Transportation Services: The Ride
The MBTA uses Waltham-based Veterans Transportation Services (VTS) to provide "The Ride" services in approximately 18 cities and towns northwest of Boston, including Waltham. The Ride is a program operated by the MBTA for those who are unable to use the normal service due to a disability. The Ride offers both sedan and lift equipped mini-buses, depending on the needs of the individual customer. It operates throughout the year from 6am to 1am. There is a small fee for each one-way ride.
New customers must register for the service by filling out an application, which can be downloaded from the website. Once you have been approved, you then call The Ride to arrange your transportation or make a reservation via the website.
