Carroll County commissioners approved a program that will provide veterans with a transportation shuttle service from two locations within Carroll County to the Veterans Hospitals in Green Street, Baltimore City and Fort Detrick.
The service will begin on Nov. 13, 2012 and will run through the end of fiscal year 13 according to a county news release. It will be funded by the county and the New Freedom Grant awarded to CATS.
Riders will board the shuttle at either the Town Mall in Westminster or the Carrolltowne Mall in Eldersburg. The shuttle will operate 3 days a week. On Tuesdays and Thursdays the shuttle will go to Baltimore and on Wednesdays the shuttle will go to Fort Detrick.
More detailed ride information will be available from the Department of Social Services which will be coordinating this program.
Four commissioners voted unanimously to approve this service. Commissioner Richard Rothschild was not present to vote.
