    Agree. And I have spoken to family members that are at risk to losing their jobs and income because of days off from work when caring and transporting a veteran with disabilities to medical appointments. With long drive times, a brief appointment becomes an all day event. If alternative and accessible transportation was available, the family members would miss less time from work.
