Charlottesville will start providing some on-demand transit services in the new year for workers or those seeking employment opportunities.
The city will begin the service for eligible families in January through the Downtown Job Center.
Hollie Lee, the city’s chief of workforce development strategies, said the city received a $183,000 grant from the Virginia Transit Association for the program.
The program will serve people who are enrolled or eligible for the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families program, a federal assistance program for families with dependent children. Individuals must be commuting to employment or employment opportunities outside of the city limits.
