26-05-2024 Independent Travel Training

The First Route Travel Training scheme supports access to public transport for young adults and adults with learning disabilities.

The scheme was set up by Enfield Council in partnership with the Metropolitan Police, Transport for London and Arriva buses, to help support individuals who were not confident with using public transport, including young adults before they transition to adult services, and adults with a learning disability.

Their sessions take place on the first Thursday of each month and give an opportunity for individuals to gain confidence to travel independently and safely, including looking at the kinds of scenarios that they could encounter on public transport.

The next sessions will be on 6th June, 4th July, 1st August, 5th September, 3rd October, 7th November and 5th December 2024. Sessions are for those who wish to travel independently using public transport. There are morning sessions from 10.30 am to 12 noon and afternoon sessions 1 pm to 2.30 pm.
