Creative Solutions to Rural Caregiving


Please join us this fall to discuss rural transportation in our newest online course!


Course Goals: 

  • To identify specific challenges faced by transportation programs serving rural areas;
  • To share innovative and replicable transportation programs that meet the needs of older adults and people with disabilities in rural communities;
  • To encourage information sharing among participants to generate additional ideas for effective solutions in rural transportation.


Who should participate: Public, private, and nonprofit transportation and human services providers, including volunteer programs; city/county employees, including those working in the fields of aging and disability services, healthcare, housing, or employment; Tribal agencies; and anyone interested in learning about rural transportation.


What will the course include: This course will include four modules. Each module contains a video presentation on the selected topic and we will provide links to outside resources and documents for reference. The topics addressed in the course are as follows:

  1. Funding Rural Community Transportation Systems
  2. Volunteer Transportation
  3. Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in Rural Transportation Planning
  4. How Technology Supports Rural Transportation Coordination


Discussion Forums: Each module will have a linked discussion forum. This course is structured in such a way that your engagement is a key part of learning! We want you to draw on the content provided to help start a conversation, share resources, and provide support. These forums will be a place for discussion with other registered participants and you will be provided with discussion questions for each module that will help prompt conversation.


Completion Certificate: Participants will be offered a completion certificate for the course if you meet the requirement of making at least two posts in the module discussion forums throughout the four weeks.
