    Transportation

For many of our homeless clients, access to reliable transportation is essential to taking steps to transition out of homelessness. Clients need to make it to appointments, work sites, training programs, and classes. To assist clients with their transportation needs, the Opportunity Center operates two 15-passenger vans, one dispatcher, and three drivers. Transportation services run five days a week starting at 5:45 am and continuing until 5:30 pm. This service averages 100 passengers a day!

Other homeless providers are able to call to schedule daily rides. The transportation office keeps an updated advance appointment book, and the dispatcher will make a reminder call the day before the client’s appointment. The transportation program has been in operation since 1999, and the vans log well over 100,000 miles a year.  This program is run in conjunction with the work of Sun Metro through Job Express, for which funding will come to a close at the end of August, 2017.
