LAREDO, TEXAS (KGNS) - The mobile bus from Workforce Solutions of South Texas was at Kaplan College Wednesday.

That's one of several stops the bus is making in the Webb County area in the near future.

A staff member says it helps with access to the internet, as well as handling questions with job applications.

"Same type of services that we apply at our center at 2389 E Saunders, we apply those employment assistance services through our mobile unit. So we try to go out to rural areas where people might have a difficult time coming to us, maybe because of transportation or because of those types of barriers. So we go to their area," said staff member Daniel Wise.

The bus runs internet service through a satellite connection.

Wise says they try to go out at least three times a week to areas that need the mobile help.

The bus makes two stops in El Cenizo and Rio Bravo Thursday. It'll be out in Bruni next week.
