“The program gave me a more potent vocabulary to articulate a vision to both augment and improve our transportation program. The scope of ideas and information from the instructors and guest ‘experts’ as well as fellow students from across the U.S. have been wonderful. I’m glad that this was where I took my first online course.”
-David Klein, Director | Carlisle Council on Aging
“This program has provided invaluable insights into the special transit needs of our aging population. The lectures, ‘Ask the Expert’ sessions, and ancillary resource materials have been excellent. Clearly, as transit providers and as a society in general we need to get ahead of the curve now by beginning to plan for these supportive transportation services, so necessary as Boomers continue to age!”
