Instituting a comprehensive paratransit vehicle driver training program is one of the easiest methods to ensure that all paratransit vehicle drivers perform properly and professionally. A comprehensive driver training program provides direct evidence that the paratransit organization recognizes the consequences of inappropriate driver behavior. Initiating such a program is the first step in building a team of proficient paratransit vehicle drivers. Additionally, there must be an identified method for measuring proficiency. This eight hour comprehensive paratransit vehicle driver training program exceeds these objectives.
