This is a free, customized travel training program for seniors, people with disabilities, newcomers, and staff of agencies/organizations that work with these groups. The program provides information, orientation and instruction about ETS, including accessible features, services and programs that are available. The program is open to groups or individuals, and instruction is tailored to the needs and abilities of the participants. The focus of the training is to educate and empower participants to learn to use transit independently and with confidence.
For individuals who need more focused instruction, one-on-one training is also available. ETS can also provide instruction to agency staff who work with clients who use transit (Train the Trainer).
For individuals using mobility aids such as wheelchairs, mobility scooters, or power chairs, we can also provide an opportunity to practice using the aid on a not in service transit bus, or try a new aid before purchase to ensure it can be accommodated on Edmonton Transit vehicles.
