Senior $3 Ride Service

Washington disability paratransit service now operating

Washington Township, the City of Washington, Tri County Regional Planning and CityLift teamed up to provide the Currently Operational Paratransit Transportation Service for City of Washington residents with mobility challenging disabilities. This service provided by CityLift will transport disabled individuals, ages 18-59, to points within Washington (for $2 each way) as well as points in East Peoria and Peoria for $6 each way. See below for other ages, rural residents and Sunnyland to Washington disabled transit options.

The age 18-59 paratransit service requires prospective riders to fill out and submit the enclosed rider application to Washington Township to be eligible for the service. Washington Township is located directly behind Hardee’s in Washington at 58 Valley Forge Drive. The form is easy to fill out and can be mailed, emailed, faxed or returned in person. If you need help, call the Township at Ph. 309-444-2987 for assistance. Please submit this form as soon as possible to get qualified. PLEASE NOTE: the application does require a medical professional sign off to be valid.

The age 18-59 disability is funded through February of 2024. Ridership will be used to assess the level of need for on-going paratransit service beyond February 2024. Robust ridership during this period will reflect positively on continuing the transit service, so please use the service
