This report provides information about the role of transportation in supporting welfare-to-work initiatives and identifies practical strategies to improve access to job opportunities for former welfare recipients making the transition to work. The Guidebook describes service approaches that include modifications to existing mass transit services, coordination between transportation services, ridesharing programs, automobile ownership programs, and collaborations between faith-based and community-based groups. The report should be useful to transit planners, decision makers, and social service and transportation providers.
