Seniors' 'Ride in Kane' Transit Fare to Increase Next Year

Since its debut in 2008, the regular fare for rides within 10 miles has been $3. Due to escalating fuel costs, the basic fare will increase to $4 starting in January.

Geneva senior citizens and disabled residents who use the Ride in Kane transportation service will have to pay $1 more per ride starting in 2014.

Since its debut in 2008, the regular fare for rides within 10 miles has been $3. However, due to escalating fuel costs, the basic fare will increase to $4 starting in January. The rate change is necessary to provide the same quality service for riders.

The cost for rides exceeding 10 miles will remain the same price at a $1.50 for each additional mile. Riders are not required to tip the driver. 

The city sponsors the Ride in Kane program for seniors age 65 and older and disabled residents. Due to increased program demand, the city instituted additional regulations starting in September, including:

  • All Geneva clients are now serviced by Pace buses (no taxi rides);
  • Use is restricted to a maximum of 30 one-way rides each month per rider; and
  • The program service area is limited to Kane County.
