'Pedal Power' May Help Homeless Find, Keep Work
STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Even when they find a job, homeless people sometimes struggle to make it to work on time. Their ride doesn't show. The bus doesn't run. Your life falls behind. Now, hundreds of the homeless should be able to get around, so long as they don't mind a little sweat. A Chattanooga program is providing bicycles for people sleeping in shelters or on the streets.
It's MORNING EDITION.
