in every state, the state workforce agency and the Vocational Rehabilitation agency have funding to provide to eligible clients who are travelling in the community to access their work. Most regional transit agencies have a disability pass that reduces the cost of the fare but why not collaborate directly with these two agencies focused on work (one just for individuals with disabilities) and provide a VR or Workforce fare card that is paid fully by the VR or Workforce agency. The funding for these cards would be purchased directly by the Transit Authority and provide to VR and Workforce clients entering employment. In that way, the Transit agency will still be accommodating but will receive the full fare for individuals who are travelling for/to work.
