Please join us to learn about an influential project that your support has made possible:

TapRide – The Route to Removing Barriers for Employment: United Way Workforce Transportation Project

With nearly 20,000 jobs, the Fargo Industrial Park is an important driver for the local, regional and statewide economy. More than 40 businesses manufacture and create goods that are exported all over the globe, and the filling positions is critical in keeping this economic engine running. One consistent barrier was the lack of reliable, public transportation, which hadn’t been available since the 1990’s, until now. Through an innovative collaborative effort among United Way of Cass-Clay, MATBUS, the City of Fargo and private businesses and investors, an on-demand bus service via TapRide technology launched almost one year ago.

We hope you can join us on one of the following dates to learn about this collaborative effort:

In this virtual session, we’ll share:
• How TapRide works and how your investment helped United Way work collaboratively to create this solution to help people in need.
• Stories of people impacted and how TapRide is removing barriers so more people can access good jobs, and employers can fill their workforce need.
• How you can help advocate and raise awareness of TapRide.
