Going Places. Building Confidence to Use Public Transport

There may be many reasons people find using public transport diffcult and stressful. Whatever our anxieties, confidence comes with practise and a bit of know-how. Eventually, the enjoyment and freedom of travel can outweigh our anxieties and using public transport can become something to look forward to. These 4 single sessions aim to build your confidence using public transport. As a group, we will take short trips to local destinations where we can enjoy easy walks, local history and wildlife. Journeys will include travel around Exeter, Exminster and Ide and to locations farther afield including Moretonhampstead and Tiverton. The course will cover useful information about bus timetables, apps, journey planning and planners, tickets and prices, bus routes and more! Attend one session, two sessions or all four!

Session 1: Journey to Tiverton. Easy walk, taking in a bit of history, industrial archaeology and nature, including a visit to the Old Heathcoat School Community Centre which is home to the Flourish Café and our Recovery Library and Drop-In Hub.

Please choose which session you wish to attend. You are welcome to attend one session, two sessions or all four! To ensure we have space for everyone, booking is essential. Students can enrol on each session separately (and which will be treated as an individual course for enrolment purposes), but to achieve the greatest benefit, the tutors encourage you to enrol on all four sessions as a single course.
