Introduction to Travel Training is an intensive three-day workshop with classroom and field instruction. The workshop offers an environment where travel trainers will acquire knowledge in the classroom and in the field, obtaining constructive feedback from trainers and colleagues. Travel trainers will receive a workbook and access to a collection of useful electronic resources ready to use when they return to work.
The workshop consists of ten modules and covers strategies for training on rail systems and in rural communities in addition to the traditional fixed-route bus material. It also covers the role of travel trainers and ADA complementary paratransit service, ADA rights and responsibilities and the process of assessing ongoing progress throughout training.
