TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) —CityBus will now help people get to and from work, with a new employer-paid program called "Ride to Work."

Companies will buy 30-day bus passes and give them to employees at no charge. CityBus will replenish the supply as needed.

This comes after a pilot program with Kirby Risk Service Center worked successfully. They currently have 28 employees using the benefit.

Malik Terell relies on public transportation to get to work and said this program would help him a lot.

"For people like me that you know need to get around the town, yeah it's going to be great. I hope it goes through, I hope they push for it," said Yates. 

The program is now being offered to any Tippecanoe County employer on or near a CityBus route.
