Research Project

Economic Analysis and Partnerships of the Job Access and Reverse Commute Program

The JARC program was funded by the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century to support transportation services for low-income people, including those transitioning from public assistance to work. This multi-year UIC project looks at program targeting of JARC funds to states and local government and indicators for outputs such as rides provided as well as outcome measures of riders in the labor market.
