Transportation options and how to travel independently on New Jersey Transit buses and trains will be discussed at a “New Jersey Transit 101” program scheduled for October 6 at SAGE Eldercare.

 

Louis Hoffman, a training coordinator from NJTIP @ Rutgers (the New Jersey Travel Independence Program and a transportation research and education organization), will teach adults to navigate New Jersey Transit, how to plan a trip, obtain tickets, pay cash fares, and understand different paratransit options.

 

Hoffman has worked as a travel instructor for NJTIP since 2008. He is a graduate of the School of Social Work at Rutgers, and specializes in group travel instruction programs for older adults and people with disabilities.

 

“Transportation is a vital part of independent living, which is at the core of SAGE Eldercare’s mission. We are pleased to offer this program to the community,” said SAGE Executive Director Angela Sullivan.
