The mission of T2R is to provide affordable transportation in the form of bus passes to low-income individuals involved in the Monroe County criminal justice system. The objective is to enable them to comply with court-ordered mandates such as court appearances, participation in treatment sessions, attendance at parole and probation appointments, and involvement with educational and job training programs.
The anticipated outcome is a cost savings to the community achieved by a reduction in the number of bench warrants, a decrease in the number of jail nights triggered by non-attendance, and a smoother reentry to the community following incarceration.
A Steering Committee has shepherded the project from concept to execution. It includes representatives from county government, social service agencies, pretrial services, the sheriff’s office, various courts and judges, faith-based organizations, Salem Nutrition Center (soup kitchen), and more. The committee is chaired by Brighton Town Judge Karen Morris.
Ticket to Ride is proud to partner with Huther Doyle.
