West Central Mass Transit District

Temporarily Suspends Services as of Saturday, October 15, 2016

 

JACKSONVILLE, IL (October 14, 2016) -- The West Central Mass Transit District  announced today that all of its transportation services in the six county area including Morgan, Scott, Cass, Schuyler, Brown and Pike will be suspended as of the end of the business on Saturday, October 15, 2016.  Suspension of services comes after the notification by the Illinois Comptroller’s office that State Grant fund payments will not be made before December 2016.  Public transportation services will not be reinstated until such time that funds owed to the system by the State of Illinois Department of Transportation are received.  West Central Mass Transit District is awaiting payment of two IDOT approved requisitions currently at the Comptroller’s office totaling $696,620.00.

West Central Mass Transit District provides safe affordable transportation services to the six county area including Morgan, Scott, Brown, Pike, Cass and Schuyler utilizing state and federal grants administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation and the Federal Title IIIB Older Americans Grant, Area Agency on Aging for Lincoln Land and the West Central Illinois Area Agency on Aging,  with generous donations provided by the City of Jacksonville, Morgan and Cass Counties, City of Beardstown, City of Virginia, Village of South Jacksonville, Passavant Area Hospital, Virginia Township, a variety of civic organizations, and fare box revenue. Access to state and federal grants keep ride cost low. The inability to access grant funds owed to the West Central Mass Transit District has forced us to temporarily suspend transportation services until such time as the state allows access to those grant funds.
