Vanpooling Presented as Commute Option to Relocating ExxonMobil Employees
Since the announcement from ExxonMobil Research & Engineering that the company would be relocating approximately 350 employees from the company’s facility in Paulsboro, NJ to Clinton Township, HART has been providing commute information and assistance to the relocating employees. The commute from the Paulsboro area to Clinton Township is 77 miles and takes approximately one hour and forty five minutes in regular traffic conditions.

One on One Employment Transportation Coaching Helps Job Seekers
A lack of reliable transportation can be a significant impediment to those seeking employment. Funded by a grant from the Greater Raritan Workforce Development Board, HART provides education on available transportation options to get to work. “The key is to put transportation at the front of the employment search process,” says Cathy Taglienti, HART Community Mobility Coordinator. “There is no point in an individual applying for a job for which they cannot consistently get to work, on time.”

Stockton Borough School’s Last Ride
For the past ten years, HART has conducted an annual bicycle rodeo 3rd and 4th graders at Stockton Borough School. The bicycle rodeo teaches students how to properly fit a helmet, how to perform an ABC Quick Check before riding, and tests students on bicycle skills through a series of obstacles and finally discusses tow path etiquette.
