Become familiar with the regional transit systems through an innovative transportation experience. Ride the MATT (Mobile Accessible Travel Training) bus which is a hands-on learning experience. Learn “travel training” tips – by learning to read bus schedules and route maps, learning how to determine and pay fares, how to signal the driver to stop, as well as other bus travel skills. The bus will stop at the Silver Line where participants will learn how to determine the fare and purchase Metrorail fare cards, load a provided SmarTrip card, read the rail system map and board the train to travel by rail. Registration is required. For more information, visit www.reston.org.
