Medical Center Shuttle Service

The VA Medical Center Shuttle is a service established between the Portland and Vancouver campuses to facilitate patient transport for patient care needs.

1. Procedures:

a. All shuttle users must use seat belts as provided.  The shuttle driver is responsible for the safety and comfort of all passengers.  For this reason the driver may refuse service to anyone the driver deems to be a threat to the safe operation of the shuttle service.  Priority seating is for Transplant and other patients.

b. Patients who require transportation between the Portland and Vancouver campuses for the purpose of receiving medical treatment at one of these facilities may be assigned to use the shuttle to accomplish that transportation.  The drivers will be asking their passengers prior to departing the VA Vancouver campus if anyone would need to disembark at SW 6th Avenue and SW Sheridan at Terwilliger Plaza.  No other off-VA campus stops will be authorized.  As a courtesy, drivers will stop to pick up passengers who flag them down before the bus exits the campuses.
