Lucas County Launches Transportation Program for Workers
WorkReady Express is a new program designed to assist workers who may lack reliable transportation to get them to and from work on time. Participants must be Lucas County residents who either already have a job or have received a job offer but have not yet started work.
More than just a ride program, WorkReady Express is designed to help workers overcome some of the challenges faced in their daily lives. Riders can work with counselors from area Financial Opportunity Centers to look at credit issues, build budgets and develop strategies for putting away funds to purchase or repair a car. Through WorkReady Lucas County, individuals will begin working toward a National Career Readiness Certificate to help them advance in their current job or move on to a better one.
