Provide a ride. Provide a way.
Transportation is one of the top barriers preventing those in poverty from becoming self-sufficient. We are a mobile society, but transportation options can be few and far between depending on where you live. For example, Fort Worth is the ONLY city out of the 41 cities in Tarrant County that has a mass transportation system. Our Transportation Services were created to bridge this gap and provide an option for the thousands of people previously left without one. In fact, we are the second-largest transportation provider in the area.
It's More Than a Ride:
Every ride makes a difference. Why? Because lack of transportation is a barrier that impacts nearly every area of a person’s life. Employment. Education. Healthcare. Not to mention the mental tax that comes with not having that independence. Transportation is one of the top barriers to employment according to employees and employers. And it’s a leading cause of missed or delayed healthcare. Last year, we provided nearly 80,000 rides. Rides that helped people get to work or to the doctor or even the grocery store. Rides that helped people restore that lost independence.
How You Can Help:
The need is even greater this year and we must expand our transportation capacity to meet this need. Right now, we are 8,000 rides away from where we need to be. Can you provide a ride today and help us make sure none of our neighbors are left behind?
