The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) will host local students as part of the Community Based Career Exploration Camp on Monday, June 18, 2018 from 9 a.m. – 10 a.m. RTC staff will teach the students how to take the bus to help them lead independent lives as they transition to life after school.

“Public transportation promotes independence,” said RTC Director of Public Transportation and Operations David Jickling. “We’re excited to show the students how they can become more independent as they transition to adulthood.”

As part of the travel-training event, students will learn about how to buy bus tickets, how to plan a bus trip, and how to learn about RTC routes throughout our community.

The travel training is part of the week-long Community Based Summer Camp hosted by the RTC, the Washoe County School District Transition Services Department and the Northern Nevada Center for Independent Living. Participation in the summer camp is free for the students who have pre-registered in the Northern Nevada Center for Independent Living summer camp.
