Travel Training 

 

Overview


Centro’s Travel Training program provides outreach services to citizens, community based organizations, and agencies that depend on Centro’s public transit system. By providing face-to face contact within the community and assisting individuals with a desire to learn more about Centro’s services, the Travel Trainer is able to customize instruction on how to ride the bus. This approach allows riders to feel more comfortable and confident with using Centro’s service while gaining an understanding of how the service is provided.

How Does It Work
