Wheels of Success


Mission Statement:
Wheels of Success is dedicated to providing personal transportation solutions by partnering with the community in a circle of support to keep people working and sustain their independence.

Wheels of Success was incorporated in June 2003 to help families obtain or continue work by providing them with reliable transportation through a program of car repairs, vehicle replacement, related licensing services, car payments, down payments and car-care classes in both Hillsborough and Pinellas counties.

Tampa is the highest cost metropolitan city in the country for transportation costs. Forty percent of the working poor’s income is spent on transportation as opposed to 24.6% of the general population’s. The bus system is not only inadequate, running infrequently and with very few routes, but it does not run in the evening or on holidays when many hospitality employees work. Parents working until 5:00pm and taking a bus (or busses) to pick up their children from daycare find it almost impossible to get there by the 6:00pm deadline.
