Dear Transit Colleague:


The National Transit Institute will be sponsoring a “Comprehensive ADA Paratransit Eligibility Determination” class in Washington, DC on October 14-15 2008.


The comprehensive course is intended for people who are interested in learning about several in-person interview/assessment tools and approaches to apply them in their systems. The course begins with a review of ADA paratransit criteria and then reviews ADA paratransit eligibility requirements.  The two-day session presents more detailed information about alternative eligibility determination processes, with a focus on in-person interview and assessment options.  It also addresses "difficult" determination issues and presents options for trip-by-trip eligibility determinations.


You can register for this class on-line at the National Transit Institute’s website at or by faxing in the attached registration form to (732) 932-1707.  The contact person at NTI is Myrna Sirleaf.  She can be reached at (732) 932-1700 ext 228 or via email at  Tuition shall be waived for Federal, state and local government employees who work in transportation or related areas.  There is a $300 fee for contractors and consultants.
