Ride In Kane Program
Since its debut in 2008, the City of Geneva has sponsored Ride in Kane paratransit (curb-to-curb) transportation for seniors age 65+ and disabled residents living within the corporate limits of the City of Geneva.

Qualified residents must first register for the program by completing an application form and providing a copy of a government form of identification (driver’s license, state ID or passport – showing Geneva address, date of birth and photograph). If needed, proof of disability must be provided (RTA Reduced Fare card, disability payment receipt, notice on doctor’s letterhead of disability, or appropriate written medical verification). Register in person at Geneva City Hall, 22 S. First St., Geneva; Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; closed holidays. Registration takes two to three days to complete; call for information: 630-232-7494.

The fare for rides within 10 miles is $4 and $1.50 for each additional mile. Fare must be paid in cash and in exact change. As always, there is no need for tipping the driver.

Because of the 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 in 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;
  • While the program is intended for local community access, the service area will be restricted to Kane County; and
  • Pickup and cancellation policy violations may result in a fine and possible suspension of rider privileges. The policy is noted in the Rider’s Guide provided to all registered riders.

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.
