The First Trip is the Hardest

Let the WRTA make it easier for you. The WRTA Travel Training program is designed to help people who would like to use the regular WRTA fixed route bus but aren't sure where to begin. You can receive instruction on a one-on-one basis, or you may prefer to bring a friend or relative and do it together – you decide. The instructor will show you how to read a schedule, how to pay your fare, and how to use a specific route or routes, until you are comfortable traveling on your own. 

Who is Eligible for WRTA Travel Training?

Anyone 13 years of age and older. The program is customized to each individual’s abilities.

What Does It Cost for Travel Training?

Travel Training is free of charge, and while you are with a training instructor, your trips are free as well.

What Will I Learn?

You will learn how to read a schedule, understand transit terminology, pay your fare, where to purchase tickets, what to do in case of an emergency, and all things having to do with learning to use public transit. If there is a particular route or routes that you would like to use, the travel instructor will tailor the training to meet your needs.
