YW Transit & JobRide

YW Transit is a community-based transportation program serving Dane County. The three primary goals of the service are as follows:

  • JobRide provides rides for low-income people going to/from work;
  • Sexual assault prevention program provides safe rides at night for potential victims of sexual assault; and
  • Contracted community transportation to provide rides to community agency programs for individuals isolated by poverty, age, disability, and language barriers who have no viable transportation options.
