Let’s Get to Work
Leaders in Lorain County recognized that transportation service has been somewhat limited, especially for those working second or third shifts at any of the many manufacturing facilities in the county. At the same time, the city of Oberlin saw an opportunity to improve not only frequency of service but also the carbon footprint of the city and county through access to electric vehicles. Through a collaborative effort, several partners throughout the county joined together to expand the frequency and hours of the local public transit system and establish an electric car-sharing service. Together, they are offering around-the-clock access to jobs.
