Service to end without passage of State Transportation Bill.
Due to reallocation of funding from the Federal Job Access Reverse Commute (JARC) program, Heritage Community Initiatives (Heritage) will no longer have the means to support the WorkLink transit program after June 30, 2013. Continued funding for WorkLink had been included in Pennsylvania Senate Bill 1; however, the legislation has yet to clear the House of Representatives.
Heritage will keep WorkLink service operating its normal route and schedule through Saturday, July 6, 2013 while we wait for passage of the State Transportation Bill. WorkLink riders are reminded that there is no service on Thursday, July 4th due to the Independence Day holiday.
The State Transportation Bill must be passed by June 30 to ensure continued WorkLink service past July 6. Heritage encourages the community to help save WorkLink.
