If independence is the key, come see how you can ride the Bee. Independent, safe travel is a cornerstone community skill, with benefits that are well documented and easily articulated.
The Westchester County Travel Training Program was designed to teach people with developmental disabilities who have the motivation to learn to travel independently, to use the Bee Line public transportation system.
Training is on a one to one basis and is specifically designed for each individual using a four-phase plan. This approach consists of modeling, prompting, fading and shadowing techniques.
The Travel Training Program is a safe, efficient, cost effective alternative to the Para Transit system. It is a free program sponsored by the Westchester County Office for the Disabled and Department of Transportation.
Referrals come from many sources including service coordinators, group home managers, vocational, day habilitation and recreational programs, special education, life skills/school transitioning programs, service coordinators and family members.
