When you are deciding where to apply for work or where to go to school or get training, one of the most important things to consider is how you will get there.

If you have a driver’s license and have use of a car, you will want to figure out the costs of using the car. Add up the miles you’ll need to travel each week, the cost of gasoline, and the cost for regular car maintenance and insurance.

If you don’t plan on driving yourself, explore other means of transportation, including the links below. Family and friends who travel to work in the same area can sometimes be a transportation resource. Sharing rides with your co-workers or fellow students may be an option too. Many colleges have “ride share” boards where you can post your ride needs.

When you have questions about transportation, be sure to ask family members, teachers, case managers and other supportive adults who can help you get answers. Plan ahead. Don’t wait until transportation problems occur to ask for help.
