RTA logo Job Access Reverse Commute / New Freedom / Section 5310

The Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities Program (Section 5310), funded by the Federal Transit Administration, aims to improve mobility for seniors and individuals with disabilities by removing barriers to transportation service and expanding transportation mobility options. This program supports transportation services planned, designed, and carried out to meet the special transportation needs of seniors and individuals with disabilities. The RTA has been administering the program as a Designated Recipient since 2013.

The Job Access Reverse Commute (JARC) program was a federally funded program that provided operating and capital assistance for transportation services planned, designed, and carried out to meet the transportation needs of eligible low-income individuals and of reverse commuters regardless of income. The New Freedom program provided new public transportation services and public transportation alternatives beyond those required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The RTA administered these two programs as the Designated Recipient from 2006 until 2013, when the JARC program was ended and the New Freedom program was rolled into the Section 5310 program. While these programs have both ended, the RTA continues to administer active JARC and NF grants.
