ONEder and The Arc of Northern Virginia Transition Suite

For more than 55 years, The Arc of Northern Virginia has worked to promote and protect the rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  In 2014, The Arc of Northern Virginia partnered with ONEder to develop the award-winning TravelMate program, which provides virtual support to individuals with cognitive challenges to be more independent in using the bus, train, and other forms of transportation.

TravelMate

TravelMate walks both trainer and individual, step by-step, through their trip, or daily commute, using customizable images, text and other supports. By the end of the second year, 96% of users had increased their ability to travel without assistance, and nearly half were able to travel independently.
