Several months after community leaders in Stowe and McKees Rocks first got together behind plans for testing a low-cost rideshare service, funds are now in place to launch a one-year pilot program.

Set to begin in early 2020, sponsors of the program say it will help meet the transportation needs of low-income residents while supplying a number of well-paying driver positions.

“RubyRide is a game-changer that will help provide our residents access to much-needed resources,” said Taris Vrcek, McKees Rocks Community Development Corporation (MRCDC) executive director. 

“It will have a significant impact on community health by providing access to fresh foods, healthcare and opportunities for education and employment.”
