Implementing Conditional Eligibility for ADA Complementary Paratransit will address how to schedule trips based on a person’s conditional eligibility for ADA Complementary Paratransit.

Topics in this session will include tracking riders’ conditions analyzing individual trips, determining eligibility for conditions that regularly change (i.e. weather-related occurrences) and best practices in implementing conditional eligibility. Connection information and the webinar presentation will be emailed to registered participants within 3 business day of receipt of payment.

10 Steps to Starting a Travel Training Program @ Live Webinar
Sep 5 @ 2:00 pm – 3:15 pm

Presenter : Kristi McLaughlin, ESPAC Consultant
Date: September 5, 2019
Time: 2 p.m. Eastern
Registration Fee: $25

10 Steps to Starting a Travel Training Program will provide the steps essential to developing a successful travel training program. With rising costs of demand responsive transportation options including ADA Complementary Paratransit and medical transportation, training on how to use the fixed-route bus or rail option (almost always less-expensive, as well as more convenient and spontaneous) is in increasing demand. Easterseals Project Action Consulting staff will provide you, your agency and/or your community a step-by-step process to starting a travel training program that will increase the choices for independent travel of those with disabilities in your community. In addition, the creation of the travel training program will assist in allowing persons with disabilities to travel on the least restrictive (and most often, least expensive) transit option, thus offering the highest level of independent mobility for people with disabilities. A bonus result is that this solution can also save your agency/community funds and allow for additional services to be provided elsewhere.
