What is Travel Training?
Using public transportation is one of the most important civil rights guaranteed under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Now you have access to the same buses used by others in the community. Mobility training on how to use accessible transportation puts you in control of your schedule, your time and your life.
Travel Training is a free program that is designed for seniors and people with disabilities or anyone who needs some help getting to know the bus system. It provides the assistance necessary for each person to successfully use Skagit Transit’s Fixed Route buses. The training is customized to meet individual needs, whether it is a basic orientation to the fixed-route system or an in-depth, hands-on training. Travel Training can range from one hour to several days, however long it takes for you to be safe and comfortable using the fixed-route bus service.
