John's first trip

Earlier this morning, Aisha provided a training session for John, which included transport practice. It's this training session and experience using public transport that Aisha would like to review with John.

Before we see their review of the experience, take a moment now to see how the training session went.

John's first trip

Aisha provided John with information and resources, but let John take the lead in actually planning his trip.

John used First Stop Transport to plan the trip – a single bus trip from his home to the shopping centre.

Aisha takes the lead in one step: she directs John to information on transportnsw.info about using bus ramps and other aspects of boarding buses with wheelchairs.

Aisha also let John take the lead when they headed out on the trip. John knew how to get to the correct bus stop, and practised road safety when getting there.

John's first trip

However, as they were waiting for the bus to arrive, John became anxious about how to position his wheelchair on the bus and how to lock it so it wouldn't move. Aisha talked John through the information they had read at transportnsw.info, but John remained nervous. He asked Aisha to speak to the bus driver about giving him time to get onto the bus and position his wheelchair correctly.

John's first trip

John had difficulty getting on the bus – he had not used a ramp before.

As a result, John became very uncomfortable, and remained uncomfortable throughout the whole trip. Aisha took the lead, and got them off at the correct stop at the shopping centre.
