Travel training provides consumers with information and hands-on training to learn how to travel safely and comfortably.
Training sessions involve one-on-one or group instruction designed to teach seniors and people with disabilities how to travel independently on fixed-route public transit. Typically, individuals receive training on how to travel to their most frequent destination (for example, to work or to a medical office).
