5316 Job Access & Reverse Commute Program
The Job Access and Reverse Commute (JARC) program was established to address the unique transportation challenges faced by welfare recipients and low-income persons seeking to obtain and maintain employment. Many new entry-level jobs are located in suburban areas, and low-income individuals have difficulty accessing these jobs from their inner city, urban, or rural neighborhoods. In addition, many entry level-jobs require working late at night or on weekends when conventional transit services are either reduced or non-existent. Finally, many employment related-trips are complex and involve multiple destinations including reaching childcare facilities or other services.
If you have any questions about the program, please contact Todd Dorcas with the Division of Public Transit at: (304) 558-0428 Monday through Friday
9 AM to 5 PM or by E-mail at: Todd.M.Dorcas@wv.gov.
