Job Access Reverse Commute (JARC)

The Job Access Reverse Commute program, (JARC) is funded by the Texas Department of Transportation. JARC was established to address the unique transportation challenges faced by low-income Individuals seeking to secure and maintain employment.

As with many entry-level jobs located in the city, low-income individuals find it difficult to access these jobs from inner city, and rural communities on a daily basis. As a result it often leaves the low-income worker feeling empty handed when factoring escalating gas prices, cost of vehicle maintenance, and additional stops to drop off children at day care.

With these challenges in mind Central Texas Rural Transit District, along with project partners, will utilize JARC funds to provide an affordable and reliable transportation service to and from work and/or training. Because we believe that everyone should be given an opportunity to succeed CTRTD named this new service project - RIDE TO SUCCESS!

JARC Goals -

  • Provide affordable transportation

  • Provide reliable transportation

  • Assist Employers with Employee shortages

  • Support local Economic Development

  • Provide an opportunity for individuals to access training and employment

  • Give all clients an opportunity for success

Don't let success pass you by. Call today!
