APPLETON, Wis. (June 02, 2021) – Valley Transit, the public transportation service in the Fox Cities, is now offering free rides to service-connected veterans as of June 1. Service-connected veterans are those who have a disability related to military service.

“We’re glad to be able to offer this free fare option,” said Valley Transit general manager, Ron McDonald. “We are full of gratitude for the sacrifices these veterans made for our country and to help them get where they need to go in the Fox Cities is just one way we can say thank you.”

To ride for free, service-connected veterans will need to display their Department of Veterans Affairs service-connected ID when boarding.
