Published DateTAMWORTH — CAP's Transit Division provides senior, disabled, low income, and general public transportation services to the residents of Coos, Carroll, and Grafton counties. To ensure safe practices are met each driver receives training in Emergency Evacuation, Defensive Driving, and Passenger Assistance which includes how to safely secure a passenger and their wheelchair or mobility device in our accessible vehicles.
Tri-County CAP is hoping someone may have a power chair and a scooter they would like to donate to the transit division that can be used for training purposes. The chair and scooter do not have to be in working condition but must be intact.
Buses are wheelchair accessible allowing those residents who use mobility devises to travel to medical appointments, grocery shopping and social activities helping them to maintain their independence, dignity, and well being. Because there is a variety of wheelchairs, power chairs, and scooters being used today by the public, securing the devices becomes difficult without the actual devices to learn on.
