What is Travel Training?

Travel training (also known as travel instruction) is short-term, one-on-one, intensive instruction designed to teach people with disabilities and seniors to travel safely and independently on fixed-route public transportation in their community. Individuals with disabilities and seniors learn travel skills while following a specific route, typically to a school or a job site. Travel instruction professionals must be able to determine how different disabilities affect a person’s ability to travel, and they must develop appropriate methods to teach travel skills dependent upon individual needs.  Source: www.travelinstruction.org
