Travel Training

 "I would love to share this experience with the general public and to any and all individuals who may stumble upon this page. I had a real pleasure doing my travel training with ValleyRide today!
   "My husband was so skeptical about me using public transportation; however, with less the money I an going to spend traveling to and from, and with the built-in video surveillance cameras inside the bus - I felt safe riding the bus for the first time! The bus was clean, spacious enough and comfortable. Anybody will enjoy the trip.
   "My appreciation for the service Ken, the Travel Trainer, has provided to me from the day I called in to inquire for travel training to the actual travel training today. he did an excellent job communicating with me during the trip and informing of important key points to remember when I travel. I am still new to Boise so his help is much appreciated. He is considerate, helpful, and made the travel training enjoyable. His is a true ambassador for your company!"
