As new cases of COVID-19 continue to spread throughout the state of Illinois, including some within the Rides Mass Transit District service area, our primary focus is the safety of our passengers and staff.
Effective now, RMTD has suspended fare collection indefinitely. Monthly passes will be valid through May 1, 2020. All eligible Medicaid and MCO trips will continue being billed through the same insurance process.
This initiative is being implemented to help reduce exposure and best adhere to social distancing guidelines.
They recommend contacting your local RMTD Operation Center for route availability at least 24 hours in advance.
RMTD is strongly encouraging travel only in essential circumstances such as obtaining groceries, food, medicine and for transportation to non-emergency medical appointments.
