January 28 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pmFree
On Tuesday, January 28th, Institute on Aging will offer a free resource training regarding transportation options for older adults and disabled adults within the City and County of San Francisco. Continuing Education will be offered for this training.
This Understanding Your Transportation Options presentation and discussion includes brief overviews of the following: The two public transportation options (Muni and SF Paratransit); accessibility; free Muni travel training; reduced-fare programs for older adults and people with disabilities; other SF paratransit programs; basic ADA eligibility certification process; and a bit more regarding ways to get around. This class is appropriate for all those who serve older adults and disabled adults, as well as older adults and disabled adults themselves.
By the end of this program, attendees will be able to:
– Utilize SF Paratransit’s Mobility Management information and referral Center;
– Provide basic descriptions of Muni and SF Paratransit programs and services offered for older adults and people with disabilities
– Assess at least two other transportation options within the City and County of San Francisco, which are appropriate for older adults and people with disabilities.
Kate Fitzpatrick, Mobility Management Specialist, SF Paratransit, Transdev / Intelliride
After more than 30 years in corporate relationship management, Kate brought her skills, experience and passion for assisting older adults and people with disabilities to SF Paratransit. Kate initially learned all about SF Paratransit’s offerings during her first two years as the Taxi Compliance Monitor, and assisting with Quality Service phone support. She also presented the SF Paratransit Debit Card & IVR Payment Process module at SFMTA’s bi-monthly New Taxi Driver Training classes. Additionally, Kate created and presented the Rider Orientation session for riders and caregivers weekly at SF Paratransit. Since then, Kate broadened her Quality Service support by becoming the first Mobility Management Specialist at the SF Paratransit Mobility Management Center. The Center’s goal is to empower older adults and people with disabilities – as well as associated providers – by making them aware of their transportation options so that they can make the best decisions for their travel needs. Kate’s Quality Service phone support has also expanded to include free individual information and referral assistance, when she isn’t out in the community delivering presentations to groups of older adults, people with disabilities and providers.
