SamTrans offers free one-on-one travel trainingto teach San Mateo County residents with disabilities who are 18 years or olderhow to ride the bus.
Working with skilled instructors, participants learn where to wait, how to get on the right bus, how to pay the fare, where to sit, how to get off at the right stop, how to make connections and how to get help if they have trouble during the trip.
Candidates for travel training include those who use a wheelchair or walker, who are blind or visually impaired or people with developmental disabilities. People with developmental disabilities may need further assessment by a travel-training instructor who can develop an individual program that’s presented in stages at a pace determined by the participant.
