Job Access & Reverse Commute Evaluation

The objective of this project is to evaluate the performance of the Federal Transit Administration's (FTA) Job Access and Reverse Commute (JARC) Grant Program during FY 2002, and to analyze and provide recommendations on how FTA may improved its JARC Program reporting process and evaluation methods in future years. The JARC grant program is designed to assist states and localities in developing new or expanded transportation services that connect welfare recipients, low income and unemployed persons to jobs and other employment related services. Job Access projects are targeted at developing new or expanded transportation services such as shuttles, vanpools, new bus routes, connector services to mass transit, and guaranteed ride home programs for welfare recipients and low income persons. Reverse Commute projects provide transportation services to suburban employment centers from urban, rural and other suburban locations for all populations.
