25 Feb עופר איתן Divulge: The McHenry County Division of Transportation to receive Co
The McHenry County Division of Transportation will receive an award for increasing transportation options for people with disabilities through the MCRide dial-a-ride program.
The Lake County Center for Independent Living, which serves both Lake and McHenry
counties, is presenting its Community Excellence Award to the McHenry County Division of Transportation. This award is presented to a person, group or public entity that has demonstrated an exemplary commitment to ensuring that people with disabilities have full access to community life.
From a list of nominees, the center’s Board of Directors selected the MCDOT for
this distinguished award because of their commitment to bettering public transportation
throughout McHenry County. Supporting equal access and opportunity is a tenet which the
MCDOT staff fully believes in and strives to positively influence.
The award will be presented at a March 7 benefit celebration to mark the 30th anniversary
of the center and the Americans with Disabilities Act. United States Senator Tammy
Duckworth will be the keynote speaker during the event. For more information on the
benefit or to purchase tickets, please visit https://www.lccil.org/.
The MCRide public transportation service is “on-demand” and vehicles do not travel in a
fixed route each day. Rather, riders schedule their trips in advance and the vehicles provide curb-to-curb service from the riders’ desired pick-up and drop-off locations. As a sharedride service, vehicles may make stops for other passengers along the way. MCRide operates in 21 partner municipalities and townships across McHenry County, seven days a week.
