ARC Recognized for Improving Mobility and Access in DeKalb County

CPACS ribbon-cutting ceremony for new JARC funded shuttle

Following up on an earlier post, the Center for Pan Asian Community Services (CPACS) recently presented the Atlanta Regional Commission with a Certificate of Appreciation for outstanding contributions to improving mobility and access for Georgia Immigrants and Refugees in DeKalb County.

CPACS is the sub recipient of FY 2008 and 2010 Federal Transit Administration Job Access and Reverse Commute grant funding administered by ARC. These awards were for the development and implementation of an employment transportation and mobility project in the Clarkston Community.

CPACS currently owns and operates two 14-passenger express shuttles used to connect the Asian and Pacific Islander refugee and immigrant community in Clarkston, Georgia with employment opportunities, training, and education. The express shuttles also connect and increase mobility options particularly for the Bhutanese, Burmese, and Nepali communities in Clarkston, Georgia.
