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 McKeesport, Port Vue, East Pittsburgh, Turtle Creek and Clairton.
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.
WorkLink Needs Your Help!
For the last decade thousands of families have depended on Heritage Community Initiatives' WorkLink. Now, people who struggle to meet basic needs but are committed to getting to work every day, face the real possibility they will no longer have our service available –unless the Transportation Bill is passed in Harrisburg.
We need your help - Please call Harrisburg today and tell your representatives to pass the Transportation Bill.

The Mon Valley is home to 13 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.

In our latest rider survey, we asked the question "What does WorkLink mean to you?"
WorkLink means so much to me! It saves me a 2 1/2 mile walk to the bus stop in the morning! Five miles total a day both ways! Your drivers are so nice and always on time. Please keep your service available. To me it really means a lot!
I have 2 jobs in Pittsburgh and I live in Wilson. The closest bus stop is in Clairton, so WorkLink saves me a 40 min walk to the bus every day and a 40 min walk home every night. Without it I might not have a job. WorkLink is a necessity for me. Thank you WorkLink.
I need WorkLink to get to work everyday. Jobs are hard to find and I thank God I didn't lose my job because of no transportation. The WorkLink is our only way to get from Clairton, Glassport, McKeesport, etc. You are truly a God given program, I thank you for your services. To not have WorkLink for me is to lose my job. I need WorkLink. I thank you for your services.
WorkLink allows me to save money to help pay bills and put toward food. WorkLink is an important, much needed means of transportation for many people to get to work. Many people don't have money for transportation to get around or look for better employment. It means a lot for riders and drivers (I'm sure) Keep it!
