BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- The Rural Health Network is receiving $150,000 from the state to help get people to work.
Matched with another $150,000, the $300,000 is intended to help transport people living in rural regions of the Southern Tier to jobs.
Bill Wagner is the director of mobility management and said Friday they will help in providing transportation, but it's not the end of the road in terms of what they are trying to accomplish.
"The whole point is to help them get on their feet, establish themselves and develop a reliable and consistent mode of transportation. We refer to it as a sustainable transportation strategy. It's not necessarily about giving someone a free ride to work for a while, it's about how you are going to maintain that," he said.
