GMT is recruiting passionate public transit users to help support riders build confidence and bus riding skills.
A GMT bus buddy will accompany a rider and explore GMT’s transit system together. You will teach a rider how to read bus schedules, find bus stop(s), navigate different GMT routes, manage fare payment, boarding and disembarking safely and pedestrian safety skills. Answer questions and run through scenarios; customizing the training to meet the riders needs. It is important that prospective GMT bus buddies have strong communication skills.
The volunteer schedule is flexible and will be arranged depending on your availability.
If you are interested in becoming a GMT volunteer bus buddy or working with a bus buddy, please contact GMT Mobility Management Coordinator, Jordan Posner, at 802-540-0874 or JPosner@RideGMT.com.
