Secretary-designee Craig Thompson said, “Lack of transportation can be an enormous barrier to people looking for work.”

Thompson continues, “This program helps to connect people to jobs – especially in counties without public transportation.”

WETAP combines state funds from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, Department of Workforce Development, and federal funds, into one program to help transportation-provider groups in all parts of the state provide transportation to low-income workers.
