The Long Ride Home: The Get on the Bus Program and Incarcerated Families


The Get On The Bus program, coordinated by the Center for Restorative Justice Works, offers support and free transportation services to families affected by the criminal justice system. They bring children and their guardians/caregivers, from throughout California, to visit their mothers and fathers in prison. These rides happen over several weekends, from Mother’s Day to Father’s Day, hundreds of families are reunited for the holidays. Special Thanks for funding from the Omnia Foundation. Thanks to Center for Restorative Justice Works, and the Get on the Bus program and to filmmaker Elizabeth Lo, whose forthcoming short documentary on the Get on the Bus program will be playing at film festivals and online outlets soon.
