Lucas County WorkReady Express Transportation Program
Reliable transportation to and from work are chief among the barriers to employment for some Lucas County residents. Without a personal vehicle, many job-seekers and those currently employed cannot easily commute to and from work.
These gaps not only leave barriers for job-seekers seeking financial self-sufficiency through gainful employment but pose a challenge for businesses in need of a prepared workforce. Put simply, individuals cannot meaningfully participate in the local economy if they cannot get to their jobs nor can businesses effectively compete in their industries if employers lack the workers they need.
To help address these challenges, WorkReady Express was designed to connect job-seekers and currently employed individuals to employers to remove transportation as a barrier to successful employment.
