Ride in Kane Program

Ride in Kane is a handicapped accessible transportation service available 24 hours-day, 7 days-a-week for eligible South Elgin residents.  Residents 65 years and older may use this service for medical appointments only.  Disabled residents may use the service for medical appointments or for transportation to work or job training destinations. 

In order to receive rides through the Ride in Kane program, you must register in person at the Community Development Department offices located in Village Hall, 10 N. Water Street.  A State ID, driver’s license or birth certificate must be presented at the time of registration.  If you are disabled, the source of the diagnosis must be presented at the time of registration (i.e. a doctor's note or social service agency document). 

Once registered, residents receive the Ride in Kane Rider's Guide which provides detailed information on scheduling a ride, including the Pace phone number for scheduling a ride. 

You may schedule a subscription service for rides that you need on a regular basis, such as regularly scheduled doctor's visits.  Scheduling a subscription service will be completed by Community Development Department staff.  All other rides will be scheduled with Pace. 

The rider's fee per ride is $4.00 for the first ten miles and $1.50 for each additional mile.  The specific costs associated with each ride will be calculated by Pace at the time appointments are scheduled. 

Transportation through the Ride in Kane program will be available for as long as funding allows.  If you have any questions, please contact the Community Development Department at 847-741-3894.
