The 2,000 homeless who rely on free van transportation every month between skid row service centers and county medical facilities found themselves without a ride for the first time in nine years this week. The funding for the vans was officially cut off in December. But Non-Emergent Transportation Van (Netvan)--the Echo Park-based group providing the transportation--was able to keep the shuttle service operating for an additional month with private donations.
