Certified Autism Welcoming Business: Transitions Travel Training

What is Travel Training?


MWRTA Travel Training is a free-to-the-public service open to anyone 12 years of age or older who would like to learn how to use the MWRTA Fixed Routes to increase access to employment, personal, social, and/or recreational opportunities in the 16 cities and towns the MWRTA serves in the MetroWest area. The MWRTA  travel training program is designed to fit each individual’s interests, abilities, needs, and travel goals. Some individuals train with the sole goal of learning how to commute to new jobs, educational programs, or residences. We individually design each training session to build upon strengths and knowledge learned and practiced in earlier sessions. Each training is paced to honor the learning style, skill sets, and comfort levels of each individual. We encourage the trainee's support team, including counselors, teachers, aides, and family members to participate in the travel training as well.

We look forward to working with you through the MWRTA Travel Training Program. Any questions, please call or email me at any time and I’ll get right back to you to schedule a time to develop a plan.
