Ride Smart Travel Training

Travel Training is a free half-day workshop that helps Montgomery County residents aged 50+ get confident and comfortable taking public transportation. Participants learn how to read the Metro map, understand digital schedule signs, load a fare card, and where to find a station’s emergency and accessibility features. The workshop includes classroom training, a trip on a Ride On bus, a visit to a Metro station, and a one-station round-trip train ride. The workshop takes about three hours. 

Advanced registration for the workshops is required. To register or for more information, call 301-738-3252 or email
