What is Transportation 101?
Transportation 101 is a training session for regional human service agency staff as well as local employers who are interested in learning more about the transportation options available within a particular area.
This ½ day session includes an overview of the commuting options, (transit, vanpooling, carpooling, biking and walking). The local transit operator(s) review their services and when possible, the participants take a ride on one of the transit vehicles. If there are other transportation organizations within the particular area, they are also invited to present an overview of their services. These sessions are modeled after others held throughout the United States.
Why should you attend?
Did you ever have a client, job seeker or job applicant tell you they could not make their appointment or could not keep their job because of a transportation issue?
Transportation 101 will help identify the various transportation options available to your clients, discover valuable resources you can use to assist your clients, and learn to navigate a bus schedule.
