The LightHouse will host a totally free Transit Trek week from Monday, August 4 through Friday, August 8.
If you are blind or low vision and between the ages of ten and nineteen and you’d like a week of adventure while learning and experiencing various public transportation routes in the San Francisco Bay Area, then you’re with us. Blind youth and LightHouse mobility instructors will take on a different destination adventure each day, such as riding BART to the International Airports in Oakland and San Francisco, MUNI to Golden Gate Park and CAL TRAIN to San Jose for lunch. The goals (besides lots of fun) include: accessing and gaining exposure to all forms of public transit including BART, Caltrain, MUNI and Sam Trans; honing cane travel skills and confidence, and most of all, developing the desire to travel with gusto and savvy.
Dates: Monday, August 4 through Friday, August 8, 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day
Space is limited to 15 students, so sign up now. East Bay students will meet at the Ed Roberts Campus in Berkeley at 9:00 a.m. to travel to San Francisco and arrive by 9:30 a.m.
