TRANSPORTATION

At North Country we understand that living your life depends on getting out and around in your community. That’s why we operate our Transportation Voucher program, a Volunteer Driver program and we work with individuals, groups and agencies on improving access to transportation for everybody.

Transportation Voucher Program

If you are a person with a disability who has a transportation barrier and you live in our service area we may be able to provide you with vouchers for transportation. If you or a family member or friend would like to find out more about the program, please contact Bob Olsgard, Transportation Coordinator at: bob@northcountryil.org or toll free at 800-924-1220, extension 20.  Or you may click the following link for our brochure: Transportation Voucher Program Brochure.
North Country’s Transportation Voucher program is funded in part by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) as authorized under 49 U.S.C. § 5310  (CFDA 20.521).

Volunteer Drivers
North Country is always looking for people to drive for others who need rides. We pay mileage reimbursement at the current federal rate: $0.535/mile.
