ACR's Employee Transportation Program - No Car? Maybe We Can Help! Skip to content

Employee Transportation Program

No car? Maybe we can help.


Having reliable employee transportation is a requirement of the Direct Care Professional position. But that's not always easy if you're a student, from out of state, or if don't want to worry about a car on top of school and work.

Employees who are University of Minnesota, North Central University, or UWRF students can sign up for ACR's Employee Transportation Program (ETP) for access to a car for getting to and from shifts at ACR.  This eliminates the need to pay for a parking spot (which can run from $90-$180/month!) Maintenance issues are not your problem, either!  It's also a great choice for the environment. AND, you don't have to shovel a car out after a snowstorm!


How the Employee Transportation Program Works

ETP Vehicles are parked in designated locations in Dinkytown and Stadium Village near the University of Minnesota Minneapolis campus and near campus at North Central and UWRF. Students who are enrolled in ETP can reserve vehicles through an automated website to use for their shifts at their ACR work location.

ACR guarantees it will meet all work-related vehicle requests from registered ETP users with a minimum of 48 hours advance notice for weekdays and 72 hour notice for Saturday/Sunday shifts. ETP users may also arrange for ride shares.

To qualify, employees must have a valid driver’s license. For more information contact

ETP vehicles are provided for the purpose of conducting ACR business only.

The Cost for Using the ETP Program

Employees enrolled in ETP pay a small deduction of $1.85 / hr to use an ETP vehicle for day and evening shifts during the week and NO DEDUCTION ($0) for weekend shifts (Fri 2-10pm-Sunday at 10pm) and awake night shifts. This deduction is made through automatic withdrawal from paycheck.

There’s no charge for travel time to and from shifts, or for using an ETP vehicle to get to initial training or shadow shifts.
