Ride In Kane Program
Since its debut in 2008, the City of Geneva has sponsored Ride in Kane paratransit transportation for seniors age 65+ and disabled residents of Geneva.

The regular fare for rides within 10 miles has been held constant at $3 since the beginning of this program. However, due to the escalation of fuel costs, the basic fare will increase to $4 for the same ride effective Jan. 1, 2014.

This rate increase is necessary in order to continue to deliver quality services for our riders. The additional cost will remain the same at $1.50 for each additional mile past the first 10 miles. As always, there is no need for tipping the driver.

Because of escalated registration and use of the program, the budget for Ride in Kane has become increasingly tight. In an effort to control costs and still be able to offer this valuable service, some ride restrictions were put into effect. Starting Sept. 1, 2013, the following was initiated: 

  • All City of Geneva clients will only be serviced by Pace buses (no taxi rides); 
  • Use will be restricted to a maximum of 30 one-way rides each month per rider; and
  • While the program is intended for local community access, the service area will be restricted to Kane County.

The City of Geneva has been pleased to serve the residents through this valuable paratransit service for our seniors and disabled residents. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Ride in Kane Coordinator, Sherri Weitl at 630-232-7494.
