The information provided on these pages, posted by the Joblinks team at the Community Transportation Association (co-funded by DOL's Employment and Training Administration and the Federal Transit Administration), was gleaned from research of existing programs operating in rural, suburban, and urban areas as well as from documents written about voucher programs. In addition to the original research that went into developing the resources attached to this wiki, two excellent resources were used and are referred to throughout these pages:
Toolkit for Operating a Rural Transportation Voucher Program ( “APRIL Toolkit”). Association of Programs for Rural Independent Living (APRIL). Available in hard copy only for $20.00.
Supported Volunteer Rural Transportation Voucher Program” (“SVRT Guide”). Brad Bernier, Tom Seekins and Kitty Herron, Research and Training Center on Disability in Rural Communities, University of Montana Rural Institute.
