“The senior bus is a lifeline for many seniors and people with disabilities within Winfield Township. If we didn’t have the bus we would not be able to go places. He takes us to the hospital, grocery stores, and just everyday things. The bus driver is wonderful. For him it’s not just a job, he cares about each and every rider. He was the first person I met when I moved to West Chicago.”

– John Boyle

“The Winfield Township bus is very helpful to us seniors. We are able to get our shopping done, go to our doctor’s appointments with no problem at all. Our great bus driver is helpful and courteous and is ALWAYS on time!”

–Maurine Dempsey
