OTTAWA — North Central Area Transit (NCAT) has announced it will be providing transportation from LaSalle County to Peoria on the second and fourth Wednesdays of every month starting in July.
Any medical appointments or other activities should be scheduled between 9 a.m. and noon. The bus will arrive in Peoria for the first scheduled appointment and wait until the last is completed. NCAT will accommodate as many riders as possible, so be prepared to wait for others’ appointments.
This route is open to the public, but seating is limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis. You must call at least three days before your requested travel day to reserve your seat, however, the sooner scheduled, the better. A one-way fare is $15, and a round-trip fare is $30. Only cash is accepted on the bus, but pre-paying with a credit card is available by calling NCAT at 833-433-6228.
NCAT provides public transportation for LaSalle County Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For information about the door-to-door, demand-response service, call 833-433-6228 or visit www.ridencat.com. All NCAT vehicles are ADA compliant and equipped with a wheelchair lift or ramp.
