Access Training Toolkits for Bus Drivers and Transit Staff

Access Training Toolkits for Bus Drivers and Transit Staff around the World

Reckless driving can make buses inaccessible to most seniors and passengers with disabilities in many developing countries. The Transit
Access Training Toolkit, prepared on behalf of the Disability and Development Team of the World Bank, helps address this problem. The
Toolkit includes pocket-size guides for bus and taxi drivers, posters, public service announcements for TV and radio stations and instructions on
how to sponsor a disability awareness event.

This is intended to help train bus drivers and transit personnel, even where there are no local resources, to address the need for safe and courteous driving. The Toolkit
is available in English, Spanish and Portuguese, in printed and CD versions.
