MTM Travel Trainers Visit Apple
On November 30th, members of MTM’s RTA Chicago Travel Training team sat down with an Apple Genius at a local Apple store to learn the ins and outs of accessibility features for iPhones and iPads. The team members will pass on knowledge gained to future trainees and caregivers, as a way to support the trainee’s independence and safety when traveling on public transportation. Staff also learned more about the wide ranges of navigational apps and features that will benefit their trainees in trip planning, finding bus and train schedules, walking directions, and general orientation of their community. This is just one more way that the Travel Training department continues to help trainees access public transportation and become safe and independent!
