Connecting people through transportation

With different transportation options available in every community, Mobility Management can help you find the right transportation provider for your needs. Mobility Management works with senior citizens, fixed-income individuals, people with disabilities, and other riders to connect you with transportation that best fits your travel preferences and your life.

Travel training

If you need help using transportation, travel training can help. Mobility Management trainings provide education on scheduling rides, boarding and exiting vehicles, using wheelchairs and other mobility devices, understanding fares and rules, and other topics related to accessing transportation. One-on-one and group trainings are available.

 

For more information or to schedule a training, contact Kelly Hammond, Mobility Advocate, 419-332-2028 or krhammond@glcap.org.

Passenger Care Attendants (PCAs)

Mobility Management also offers a Passenger Care Attendant program for riders who may need travel assistance. Passenger care attendants are trained volunteers who help individuals with mobility impairments by offering door-through-door assistance, assistance with grocery bags and packages, and boarding and exiting vehicles.

 

If you would like more information or are interested in becoming a volunteer, contact Alyssa Buccione, Mobility Specialist, 419-332-2028 or ajbuccione@glcap.org.

CarFit

CarFit is an educational program that offers older adults the opportunity to check how well their personal vehicles "fit" them.

The CarFit program also provides information and materials on community-specific resources that could enhance their safety as drivers, and/or increase their mobility in the community.

 

Safe Routes to School

The purpose of Safe Routes to School is to encourage and enable students in grades k-8 to walk or ride their bicycle to school.

Projects can be either engineering (improved crossings, sidewalks, etc.) or non-engineering (education and encouragement programs). 

Since the program begin in 2008, walking and bicycling to school has increased in Ohio communities with active Safe Routes to School (SRTS) programs.

The responsibility of a safe route to school is ultimately shared by the user, government agencies, elected officials and safety advocates.



Complete Streets are streets for everyone. They are designed
and operated to enable safe access for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities. Complete Streets make it easy to cross the street, walk
to shops, and bicycle to work. They allow buses to run on time
and make it safe for people to walk to and from train stations.
