The Indiana Statewide Independent Living Council (INSILC) is offering a training series on disability and transit. The transit trainings are designed for transit service providers, community-based partners, and transit riders themselves. Access to transportation is essential to keeping people with disabilities active in their communities, and it is important that transit providers are up-to-date with current best practices in disability etiquette, rider rights, and laws pertaining to service animals.


All trainings will be held from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm EDT, and will include time for participant questions. Trainings are available via livestream or on-site at Project Lead the Way, 3939 Priority Way South Dr, Suite 400, Indianapolis.
