[August 29, 2014]  LINCOLN - Logan Mason Public Transportation (LMPT) is proud to announce their first Light Duty Paratransit Vehicle. This vehicle is a 2014 Ford Starcraft equipped for 12 seated passengers or 4 wheelchair devices.

The vehicle was awarded through the IDOT Consolidated Vehicle Procurement and is written on an annual basis by Program Director, Angie Jenkins. “We provided nearly 20,000 rides last year and have currently operated with only mini vans, so receiving this vehicle will allow us to expand our opportunities and offer contract services to partnering organizations” said Jenkins. LMPT is an “On Demand Response” transportation system that is offered to individuals of all ages throughout Logan and Mason County for a reasonable fare.

The program is partially funded with state and federal monies from 5311, Downstate Operating Assistance and the Area Agency on Aging for Lincolnland,Inc. and also receives local support from the United Way of Logan County and Logan/ Mason County Board Senior Tax Monies.
