Operating, Capital, and Mobility Management
The RTA Board approved the 2011 Program of Projects at its November 16, 2011 meeting. Grant agreements have been executed. By agreement with Washington Township this project has taken on the management responsibilities for grants initially awarded to Washington Township. As a result of this agreement an additional $32,970 in federal funding has been added to this project. Will County formed the Paratransit Council that will help to set policy for the project. The project began to provide service for Monee and Peotone townships on November 1, 2013. Frankfort Township joined the project in August 2014. The service provided 230 trips in June 2014.
