Transit Access Training Toolkit

| 0 Comments

Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to attach our newly-prepared Transit Access Training
Toolkit as part of its dissemination on behalf of the Disability and
Development Team within the Human Development Network of the World
Bank. This publication includes pocket-size guides, model posters,
public service announcements, and other resources to assist in training
bus drivers and other public transport personnel, thanks to an
initiative of the Bank using funds provided by the governments of
Norway and Finland. The document is also available in Spanish and
Portuguese, and in printed and CD versions. The CD version includes
the posters in various formats to assist in their use where desired.
As noted in the Toolkit, "this material may be reproduced without
permission for non-commercial purposes only, provided the source is
acknowledged." The source can be cited as the Human Development
Network of the World Bank.

Further resources are found at www.worldbank.org/disability and at
www.globalride-sf.org.

Best wishes,

Tom Rickert
