Intentional Communities of Washtenaw : New transportation services in Washtenaw County

From Intentional Communities of Washtenaw:

This month at the ICW meeting we will learn about what is new in transportation services from the Ann Arbor Transportation Authority. This is a meeting of special interest for persons with disabilities and their families.

 Our presenter will be Brian Clouse who is the ADA/Paratransit Coordinator at Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority (TheRide).  Brian is responsible for many programs including ARide, GoldRide, Fare Deal, Travel Training, service eligibility and project management of in-house and contracted paratransit services for persons with disabilities, seniors and persons with low-income.  Bus and A-Ride services have recently been expanded and you will want to learn about these changes.

Brian has also told us he will try to bring his travel trainer with him so you can learn first-hand about how to get comfortable taking TheRide.    

These monthly sessions are a great way to learn more about supporting loved ones who are living with developmental disabilities and to meet people who have similar interests.  Whether you are part of Intentional Communities now or are just looking for more information, you will be most welcome.
