Once you have completed your Travel Trainer training, you will be registered with MATBUS as a Travel Trainer. However, you will not be working for or representing MATBUS. You will be representing your agency when you provide travel instruction. As a Travel Trainer, while providing travel training to clients, simply show your official instructor card to ride for free.
To aid in training clients, you will have access to a 10-ride card for each client you train. This card can be used to practice riding MATBUS. Each client you train will receive one 10-ride card. To request a 10-ride card for a client, simply email your request using the contact form below or call 701.241.8140 When requesting a 10-ride card we will need your name, agency, and client name.
