For the next 4-6 months, family members drove all the way in from the suburbs to pick him up in the morning to take him to work in the suburbs and then drove him back each night. Without the family support, he would have failed & not everyone has family that can help that much.
Why did he not use the bus system? I have never used it myself but it should be an option. Good for him his family helped him out, I know mine would if I was in that situation.
