OHIO WORKS FIRST VANPOOL PROGRAM. PROGRAM RECOMMENDATIONS
The new welfare legislation has provided county agencies and transportation providers across the country with a challenge. Individuals transferring from welfare to work encounter similar challenges caused by spatial and temporal mismatches and childcare transportation. The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (GCRTA) has developed a vanpool program that seeks to address many of the challenges in getting Ohio Works First (OWF) clients on the path of self-sufficiency. This report describes an extensive review of Welfare-to-Work (WtW) transportation programs started throughout the country and provides an evaluation of the GCRTA Vanpool Program, as well as the regional program that GCRTA has developed together with Provide-A-Ride, Inc, and the Cuyahoga Work and Training Department.
