[June 14, 2008]  The Logan and Mason Transit Partnership Group has moved to the second phase of the five-step primer process to bring federal transportation dollars to Logan and Mason counties. Community needs are being assessed and surveys are being distributed throughout the two counties and online at Surveys must be submitted by July 3.

InsuranceDetermining transportation needs of the community is a crucial part of the process as the group moves forward in developing a coordinated public transportation effort. The survey, developed by the Interagency Coordinating Committee on Transportation, is used to determine who needs transportation, where they need to go and when they need to go. The purpose is also to identify gaps between what is needed and what is provided.

Logan and Mason County residents are encouraged to visit the Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois on the Web at to fill out the survey. Surveys must be completed by July 3. Hard copies of the surveys may be filled out and returned to various locations throughout the counties, including the Lincoln Public Library, Jacksonville Area Center for Independent Living, Logan and Mason County health departments, and the Community Action offices in Lincoln and Havana. Several large employers are also distributing the survey to their employees to encourage participation in the survey.
