What is the Travel Training program?
Objective: To provide the knowledge and practical skills that are needed to travel independently on public transit.
Who is Eligible: The Travel Training program is in a pilot phase. Its starting point is to assist people experiencing disability who want to learn to ride city transit. In the future it may expand to include: seniors, newcomers, etc.
You will learn how to:
• Plan your trip
• Read & understand maps and technology (TransitLive)
• Navigate your way to the bus
• Board & exit the bus
• Transfer buses
• Travel safely
There are many benefits that come from learning to ride city transit, including: increased freedom, confidence, independence and access to services. It also creates a greater sense of community and reduces costs!
