Green Venture and Metrolinx are holding free workshops designed to give older adults the knowledge and skills to confidently navigate public transit.
Topics such as local bus routes, bus fare and passes, seniors’ discounts, and trip planning will be covered.
Workshops will be offered at: Feb. 19, 10:30 a.m.-noon at Westdale Library, 955 King St. West; Feb. 25, 10:30 a.m.-noon at Turner Park Library, 352 Rymal Rd.

Registration is not required to attend a workshop.
Participants will have the opportunity to sign up for a guided bus trip, where they will travel in small groups of two to four people on the bus with a trained bus travel guide. Free bus tickets will be provided and the guide will orient them on how to use the bus while they ride to a fun location for an outing, before travelling back to their starting point on the bus together.
To sign up for a guided bus trip, please call 905-540-8787 ext 154.
