The DuPage Mayors and Managers Conference completed the DuPage Area Transit Plan. The plan identifies a system of public transportation services to be implemented throughout DuPage County. One element of the plan is a system of community circulators. More background information is available on the DuPage Area Transit Plan webpage.
Circulators are community-based, locally-oriented bus transit services that bridge the gap between the larger bus or train routes and residential, commercial, or workplace destinations. They can also be used to travel around the community or even between communities.
The DuPage Mayors and Managers Conference has begun the implementation of the circulator services. The first step is to seek input from the 13 communities participating in this plan. The thirteen participating communities were identified by a DMMC selection committee and include Addison, Bensenville, Downers Grove, Elmhurst, Glen Ellyn, Glendale Heights, Lombard, Oak Brook, Oakbrook Terrace, Villa Park, West Chicago, Wheaton, and Wood Dale.
A number of opportunities are planned for local community input. Each person is encouraged to complete the online questionnaire to provide direct input to the consultant team. The questionnaire will take only a few minutes to complete and allows you to give us detailed information about your transportation needs and priorities for local circulator services in DuPage County.Individuals may also email the consultant team with additional input.
Public meetings were held during February and March. The input from these meetings was used in the market analysis.
Meetings have been scheduled in June to identify potential service areas for circulator services.
As interim reports are prepared, they will be posted on this website and will be available for review and comment. Everyone is encouraged to provide feedback on each interim report.
