Veyo Works From Home – Episode 6
May 8, 2020
Wrapping up week 8 of quarantine here at Veyo and as we start to see parts of the country re-open, we want to give a big Thank You to all our transportation providers who have been driving with us these past 8 weeks to ensure members could get to their essential healthcare appointments. We couldn’t have done it without them and we’re so grateful to be partnered with such a great group of drivers. From all of us at Veyo, thank you!
