About the Program
The Winnebago Catch-A-Ride (WCAR) program provides 24/7, on-demand employment transportation services for workers throughout the greater Oshkosh area. This program is not meant to duplicate services, but rather fill in the gaps for existing transportation services throughout Winnebago county. Therefore, this service cannot be used in areas or during times when other viable public transportation is readily available.
Winnebago Catch-A-Ride is brought to Winnebago County through a partnership with Make the Ride Happen, a program of Lutheran Social Services of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan, and the East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission. WCAR is powered by Feonix – Mobility Rising, a non-profit organization whose mission is to enhance transportation options for vulnerable and underserved communities.
