Chapters Ten to Thirteen offer four US-based case studies, each demonstrating some of the practical initiatives that have emerged to address transport inequities in the US. This chapter describes and evaluates initiatives that have been introduced in the State of California in response to the Job Access and Reverse Commute (JARC) programme as part of the US ‘welfare-to-work’ agenda, which aims to assist low-pay workers to access entry-level employment. Reverse-commute public-transport services have over the years been viewed as important means of enhancing the mobility and job prospects of inner-city residents. However, relatively little empirical research has been carried out that examines the reverse-commute marketplace.
