Have you ever wondered how many companions are allowed to ride with a complementary paratransit eligible passenger?  Or how much assistance a bus operator is required to provide to a passenger with a disability in boarding the bus? Or how many service animals a person with a disability can bring on a fixed route bus?  If you have had these question or other ADA related questions accessible transportation, then this workshop is for you.
This 1.5 day, in-person workshop will cover regulatory requirements for fixed-route, ADA complementary paratransit, and demand responsive transportation.  Instructors will also distinguish between what is a regulatory requirement and what are best practices in customer service.
Registration fee is $195
