CAT Community Access to Transportation ___________________________________________

The Community Access to Transportation project is wrapping up. This city-funded program trained people who use developmental services in Hamilton to ride the bus independently. The first part of training was taught in a classroom. The second part of training was taught to each trainee on his or her own, with a trainer, on the bus.

For information about the project, please contact:

Michelle Martin

Project Coordinator
