Bay Transit Quarterly Safety Meeting – A Special Presentation and Education Session
Bay Transit had 150,985 riders in the past year. These riders or the families and friends of these riders come from all walks of life and many of these riders also have various disabilities, some more noticeable than others. As a Bay Transit Driver or Employee, we serve all individuals regardless of their ability or disability.
On the evenings of 6/20 and 6/22, in Gloucester and Warsaw respectively, over 100 Bay Transit staff members learned many characteristics of individuals with various disabilities and how to transport them safely in a customer-friendly environment. The American’s with Disabilities Act of 1990 was the focal point and details of the rights of passengers with disabilities were a key talking point.
The presentation was given by Ms. Catherin Tyler-Northan, Community Services Manager, with Insight Enterprises, Inc. which is part of the Peninsula Center for Independent Living in Hampton. Joining Catherin are Independent Living Advocates with Insight Enterprises, Inc.:
Mr. Troy Bowser
Ms. Alicia Cook
Ms. Lorna-Mae Silcott and
Ms. Marissa Dixon, Community Support Services Advocate with Insight Enterprises, Inc.
