While many people are working remotely under mandatory stay-at-home orders, there are people who must travel to ensure that they can continue to financially support themselves and their families. PA CareerLink® Philadelphia staff can provide Lyft discount codes to essential workers who need to get back and forth to work and assist career seekers with traveling to interviews, work screenings, and job trainings.   

By closing short-term transportation gaps for those who need the most help right now, our hope is that this partnership helps people stay connected to opportunities as Philadelphia begins to recover.
