Job Access and Reverse Commute (JARC)

Program Overview
The Job Access and Reverse Commute (JARC) program was established to address the unique transportation challenges faced by low-income persons seeking to obtain and maintain employment. Many new entry-level jobs are located in suburban areas, and low-income individuals have difficulty accessing these jobs from their inner city, urban, or rural neighborhoods. In addition, many entry level-jobs require working late at night or on weekends when conventional transit services are either reduced or non-existent. Finally, many employment related-trips are complex and involve multiple destinations including reaching childcare facilities or other services.
                                                                                                  
NDMJ offers JARC Urban and JARC Rural services to qualified and approved passengers. All JARC services must be scheduled no later than regular business hours the day before services are needed. Premium Same Day Services are also offered if desired, please click here for rate details.
