San Joaquin Regional Transit District (RTD) is pleased to offer free travel training within RTD’s San Joaquin County service area. Travel Training is designed to offer senior citizens and people with disabilities one-on-one instruction on how to use fixed route public transportation in an effort to gain independence and increase mobility options.

RTD is teaming with Paratransit, Inc., the national leader in travel training, to bring their 35 years of travel training experience to Stockton.

RTD’s Travel Training Program teaches participants to travel independently to specific destinations, maneuver mobility aids on and off RTD buses, identify landmarks, and travel to and from bus stops. The program uses a series of gradual steps to build confidence and independence, starting with close, one-on-one instruction and gradually reducing the level of assistance as the participant’s skills develop. If you’re hesitant to ride the bus, travel training will give you the confidence you need to feel comfortable and in control while riding public transit.

Enjoy your new freedom! Learn how to travel to:

  • Work or school
  • Medical appointments
  • Recreational programs
  • Senior centers
  • Grocery store or the mall
  • Friends and relatives
  • Church
  • Restaurants

“The bus is easy and convenient. It gives me the mobility independence that I need, when I need it. The drivers are friendly and greet me by name.”
