Wheels to Work is a new ride-to-work program for those with transportation barriers and people simply looking for a reliable and affordable transportation alternative. Users access neighborhood-based hubs, each serving as a pick up and drop off point.
Wheels to Work is all about helping you get to work – reliably and affordably. Our shared fare plan is designed so that you pay a small cost, and your employer does the same. You’ll be picked up at one of our hubs and dropped off where you work. Sound easy? You’d be right.
Unlike community transportation created with all individuals and destinations in mind, Wheels to Work is specifically made for workers who need transportation that goes right to their workplace.
Both the employee and employer share a flat, affordable fare. Since research shows the cost of replacing an employee is in the thousands, Wheels to Work is an extremely worthwhile investment for companies.
Based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Hope Network serves as the single point of contact, driving the program and coordinating with other transportation partners across Kent County and beyond, to find most cost-effective solution for each trip.
