Seniors can get tips for getting around town

By From page A4 | April 16, 2014

Senior citizens and those with disabilities are invited to learn how to use the variety of transportation options to get around town at a free workshop from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Davis Senior Center, 646 A St.

Participants will learn how to travel to destinations like the movies, a favorite restaurant or shopping excursions. They may choose one of three training sessions: transit (facilitated by Unitrans and Yolobus), paratransit (city of Davis Community Transit and Yolobus Express) and bicycling (city’s Active Transportation Program).

Following the training sessions will be short supervised group activities intended to break the “fear barrier” in using these services alone.

The travel training program aims to improve awareness, understanding, use and confidence in using local transportation options; forge new social connections; and more importantly, increase independence. The workshop is held twice each year — in the spring and fall.
