Heritage WorkLink helps riders get to jobs, job training and work-related support services. We provide fixed route van transportation to the residents, workers and students of the Mon Valley and connect our riders to bus routes operated by Port Authority of Allegheny County. We currently serve the communities of East Pittsburgh, Turtle Creek, North Versailles, McKeesport, Port Vue, Glassport, Clairton and the Jefferson Regional Medical Center and CCAC South Campus.
Heritage WorkLink was created to assist isolated communities by helping people get and keep good jobs by reducing geographic limitations. Some of the areas we serve have such narrow streets, steep hills, and tight turns that they are not accessible to buses and many of our riders don’t own cars. Our safe and reliable transportation is vital to our riders.
Heritage WorkLink is funded through the Accessible Transportation and Workforce Interagency Cooperative.
The Mon Valley is home to 10 of the 15 poorest communities in Allegheny County (2000 Census). The widespread economic distress in the entire valley means that residents must travel further for good jobs and have very little access to the extensive social services in their communities. In the current economy, low-income residents of the Mon Valley are quickly losing what little access they have to basic services. Without these services they will be forced to lose their jobs, move, or plunge their families into even deeper economic distress. In designing and running the transportation service, Heritage WorkLink staff realizes the need to address education and human service support systems that complement individuals’ ability to enter and be retained in the workforce. Job readiness can be just as necessary to finding a job as job availability. Heritage WorkLink plays a critical role in connecting community development, economic development, and human services programs to transportation — it connects the dots to create more sustainable families within the communities we serve.
