  • Abstract:
    Established in 1998, the Job Access and Reverse Commute Program (JARC)–administered by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA)—awards grants to states and localities to provide transportation to help low-income individuals access jobs. In 2005, the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act—A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) reauthorized the program and made changes, such as allocating funds by formula to large and small urban and rural areas through designated recipients, usually transit agencies and states. SAFETEA-LU also required GAO to periodically review the program. This second report under the mandate examines (1) the extent to which FTA has awarded JARC funds for fiscal years 2006 through 2008, and how recipients are using the funds; (2) challenges faced by recipients in implementing the program; and (3) FTA’s plans to evaluate the program. For this work, GAO analyzed data and interviewed officials from FTA, nine states, and selected localities.
