We can show you how!
CARTA offers transportation training for people with disabilities. The Travel Trainer works with bus drivers and people with disabilities. The Trainer assists people with disabilities to become more independent by using fixed route transit services. The Trainer helps drivers to be more sensitive to members of the community who have disabilities. The Trainer understands the transit system and the disability community, facilitating a positive relationship between the two.
Travel Training is a combination of intensive, one-on-one rider training and driver sensitivity training. The goals of Travel Training are to help produce self-assured members of society who will use, and encourage others to use, fixed route transit services and to help train drivers to be compassionate and sensitive in their interactions with people with disabilities.
Through the Travel Training program, the Trainer will work with you to help you to understand bus schedules and take bus trips with you until you feel comfortable riding independently. The only cost to you is your bus fare.
