New Countywide Paratransit System Expected in 2022
A new borderless countywide paratransit service is getting closer to launching in Lake County. At its Sept. 14 meeting, the Lake County Board approved a resolution to work with Pace Suburban Bus on a new paratransit service known as Ride Lake County. Currently, several communities, townships and transit agencies offer paratransit options in Lake County, but all these services have different geographic boundaries, hours of service, rates, and more.
The proposed Ride Lake County service aims to provide one consistent service that individuals age 60+ and those with disabilities can use to get to work, grocery stores, medical appointments and more throughout Lake County. Existing paratransit services will remain in place until the new service is launched, which is expected in 2022. Watch this informational presentation.
