Ride DuPage Pilot Program

Ride DuPage Pilot Program

Quality of life for Warrenville residents is impacted by a variety of factors, one of them being access to transportation. It is especially important for residents 65 and older and residents with disabilities. In an ongoing effort to evaluate the services offered to these residents, the City launched a one-year pilot program with Ride DuPage, which began on April 25, 2019. Ride DuPage offers transportation services to seniors and individuals with disabilities, age 16 and over. This pilot program is in partnership with the City of West Chicago and Winfield Township. The City’s A.C.O.R.N. van program will continue to operate during this time. The purpose of running both programs simultaneously is to gather data that will assist the City in determining the appropriate level of service and cost-effectiveness of the programs.

There are several benefits to the Ride DuPage program: 1) it is administered by Pace Suburban Bus, a transportation agency, which has provided transportation service for more than 30 years 2) the curb-to-curb service is offered twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, including weekends and holidays and 3) riders can travel anywhere throughout DuPage County, for any reason, including personal visits, shopping trips, medical appointments, or just getting to and from work.

Trips must be scheduled a minimum of 24 hours in advance, and may be scheduled as early as seven days ahead of time. Ride DuPage is a cash-only service and the cost per ride one-way is $2.00 plus $1.00 per mile (rounded to the nearest half mile).

Warrenville residents may register for the program by contacting City Hall at 630-836-3050. Once you register with the City, please allow up to a week before you can begin using the program. The City will request periodic feedback from riders about both programs to assist with information gathering and program evaluation.
