Many individuals with autism prefer to use public transportation instead of during their own car or relying on other people to give them a ride to the places they need or want to go. For this reason, it is important to become familiar with mass transit options, and the social rules to follow when using public transportation.
These information sheets provide general tips about using mass transit in Pennsylvania as well as specific information about using buses, trains, taxis, and the subway system. The information is presented in a range of formats for you to use the version that works best for your needs: text based, image based, and social stories.
Driving a vehicle can be overwhelming for many adults with ASD. For this reason, it is important to become familiar with mass transit options and the unwritten social rules of mass transit.
