Public transport travel training

Public transport made easy

Do you need help learning how to travel on public transport?

Travel training can help you get the confidence and skills you need to use public transport safely and independently.

Travel trainers are experts in teaching the use of public transport to people with all types of abilities, such as intellectual disability, autism, anxiety, learning delays, mental health issues, cerebral palsy and mobility issues.

How does it work?

Travel training teaches people how to navigate the public transport network, as well as in strategies for dealing with emergencies and safe road crossing. Services are covered by the NDIS or can be self-funded.

Your travel trainer will discuss your public transport needs, plan the best route and accompany you on practice trips, with further sessions if you need them.

Training methods and programs are tailored to suit each person’s needs, personal circumstances and learning styles.
