In a ribbon cutting-ceremony ahead of Monday’s Montgomery Village Board meeting, village trustees and officials welcomed the expansion of Kendall Area Transit to the Kendall County portion of the village.
KAT Director Mike Neuenkirchen was on hand for the ceremony Monday evening. As WSPY reported in June, KAT and the village officially announced the expansion of service starting July 1st.
Neuenkirchen says the dial-a-ride service has already provided more than 700 rides to Montgomery residents since May.
In 2017, KAT provided more than 30,000 rides to Kendall County residents. Neuenkirchen says a lot of seniors and disabled riders use the service most.
KAT began service in the county in 2010. Rides are between $2 and $5 and officials ask that riders give two days notice if in need of a ride.
Kendall Area Transit operates 6:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Montgomery residents in Kane County have the “Ride in Kane” program available to them, which offers public transportation and ADA paratransit service.
