Bikes for Job Access is in part funded the contributions of individuals and our BiCi Co. members. Help us secure the future of this program by donating today.
Bicycles greatly increase the mobility of those who are on a limited income and/or looking for work. Bus transit is spotty in Hartford suburbs, and particularly inadequate for those working the second or third shift or on weekends.
BiCi Co. works with Hartford transition programs, local shelters, and the Center for Latino Progress’ job training programs to identify those who would benefit from using a bicycle to get to work. Participants are referred by their program (using a simple online form) and chip in $20, which may be sponsored by their referring organization. They receive an up-cycled bicycle, a secure lock, bicycle lights, and a helmet.
2021 Bikes for Jobs Update – We’ve gotten out 25 bikes so far in the first four months of this year. We’re working right now to keep this important program funded and running through the rest of the year.
