Send a link to a friend
[May 30, 2018]
Transit, operated through Community Action Partnership of Central
Illinois, has been providing transportation for Logan and Mason
Counties for the past 30+ years.
Starting on Monday June 4th, CAPCIL Transit will
begin scheduling transports with a 24-hour prior notice. Ryne
Komnick, Chief Operations Officer and overseer of the transportation
program stated, “Our number one priority is offering the best
experience for our customers. We feel that reinstating an on-demand
system will better fit the needs of our riders”. Currently the
program only offers the Senior Flex Route with various scheduled
stops throughout Lincoln.
Customers can call 217-732-1056 to schedule their ride, with
priority given to those over the age of 60. Local rides can be
scheduled with 24-hour notice while out of town rides will need to
be scheduled at least one week in advance. Seniors (age 60+) can
ride with a donation of $2.50, while all other adults pay a one-way
fare of $3.
