Close to 40 people met at the Harwich Community Center to discuss transportation problems for J-1 participants on Cape Cod. Sponsors, a representative from the CCRTA, committee members of Hello Summer J-1 and Mid-Cape J-1 Housing Program, committee members of J-1 Outreach Cape Cod, the president of the Cape Cod Council of Churches, and concerned citizens were in attendance. Some of the highlights:

  1. Roads need to be have better lighting at night.
  2. Bicycle safety equipment needs to be obtained for J-1 participants. A member of this group is going to write a grant for this equipment. Thank-you Gail Lavin!
  3. The Lower Cape J-1 Bus will run again in the summer of 2017.

Thank-you to Janice Fox of INTRAX, INC. for putting together this meeting.

Other meetings in the coming months will discuss housing issues for J-1 participants as well.
