With the ongoing nationwide expansion of our On the Move functional assessment and travel training program, MTM is pleased to introduce Sean Powers as Senior Director, Functional Assessments and Travel Training. In this role, Sean leads MTM’s On the Move program, which provides high quality management of functional assessments to determine if individuals with disabilities are eligible for complementary paratransit services, and offers travel training to those who need assistance learning how to ride fixed route buses and trains independently. MTM partners with transit agencies nationwide to administer these services as a way to improve community access, increase fixed route utilization, and contain paratransit costs.
Sean is an experienced mobility and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) professional, having served in various roles with Paratransit, Inc. over the past 10 years. Most recently, he served as the Division Chief for the organization’s Innovative Paradigms branch, overseeing the company’s paratransit eligibility, travel training, and mobility management operations nationwide. Sean is actively involved in the industry, serving as Board Member, Executive Committee Member, and Treasurer of the Association of Travel Instruction, the industry’s most prominent body of travel training and paratransit professionals.
“With his enthusiasm and leadership abilities, as well as his proven record of managing assessment and travel training operations throughout the country, Sean is the leader our growing On the Move program needs,” said MTM’s President and CEO Alaina Maciá. “I am confident that Sean will enhance the services we provide to our clients and allow us to bring our vision of communities without barriers to even more transit agencies and their passengers.”
