Workshops:

The Parkway Center offers several transportation workshops if you are interested in having Way2Go present at your agency please contact us.

Welcome to the Way2Go “Transportoptions” this is a workshop for All that talks about transportation education as a two-way street! During the workshop each participant is given a binder packed with information to help people take charge of their transportation. You can remove pages and make copies, and review your options. Transportation is a basic need for individuals in Herkimer/Oneida County, whether they are commuting to and from work, trying to get to a doctor’s appointment, grocery store, or even just going to see family or friends.

Welcome to the Way2Go “Retiring from Driving Transportoptions” a collection of information that helps seniors or caregivers understand, compare, choose use and give feedback on transportation options in Herkimer/Oneida County. You can use your Transportoptions binder to learn more about the transportation programs and services available, help people make informed choices about their mobility options, educate people about all of the available resources that may help them get to where they need to go, the easiest and least expensive way possible.
