Schuylkill Transportation System took children throughout Schuylkill County on a tour designed to teach them about public transit.
As part of its revamped paratransit program, Metro provides travel training and outreach to customers with disabilities to teach them about the accessibility features of the bus and rail systems.
The ability to live a self-sufficient life is important to everyone, and the ability to travel between home and destinations of choice is an integral part of self-sufficient living. Some people with disabilities use paratransit services to get where they need to go while others use fixed-route systems.
Travel trainers teach disabled and older persons to use local public transportation fixed-route services safely and independently
Programs aimed at young children use field trips and visual effects-filled presentations to extol the benefits of using transportation, while others geared toward seniors use discussions and training to help them make the sometimes difficult transition from driving.
