Moraine Township Awarded ‘Innovative Senior Program’ Recognition
State Group Cites Commitment to Senior Transportation Services

Moraine Township was awarded recognition as 2007’s most “Innovative Senior Program” among Illinois Townships. The competitive “Commitment to Senior Services Award” was given based upon the Township's transportation initiatives comprised of Moraine Door-to-Door vans and the taxi subsidy program.

The Illinois Township Association of Senior Citizens Services Committee presented a plaque citing Moraine Township at the Township Officials of Illinois annual state convention on November 13.

“We are extremely proud of this recognition,” Supervisor Mari Barnes declared, “and of the entire transportation program.”

Seniors and disabled residents may reserve a seat in one of two Township vans for an up to 15 mile radius ride to medical appointments for just $4 per ride, door-to-door, with caregivers and mobility equipment traveling at no extra charge. Reservations must be made 48 hours ahead to a dedicated Van Line, 847-432-3000.
