Transportation Department

In partnership with the PACE Municipal Vehicle Program

Joliet Township Government has designed a new Transportation Department to foster partnerships with various agencies, providing much-needed support to those in need of transportation assistance. This program was born to positively impact many lives by addressing a serious gap. A pilot program is currently underway, and additional agency partners are being sought to help bring this to fruition.

Why It Matters

Transportation is essential for residents to access resources and services offered by local agencies, impacting their quality of life and opportunities. Throughout history, transportation has been a determining factor in the health outcomes of individuals with limited access to transportation. The inability to access a motor vehicle, public transit, or lack of resources that facilitate transportation services can hinder an individual’s ability to seek healthcare treatment, obtain an education, training, and economic infrastructure, and access necessities such as food and water.

Within Joliet Township Government’s boundaries, current public transit options include rideshare, dial-a-ride, and fixed-route buses. However, current options may not fully meet community needs because of affordability, reliability, complex scheduling, or pick-up location. These barriers complicate the ability of an individual to complete case plans, which directly impacts the individual’s success to thrive.

Many times, initiatives to increase access to paratransit transportation have been unsuccessful. Joliet Township Government acknowledges this and is committed to taking a proactive approach for the benefit of its residents.


The trips taken must be within the Joliet Township Government’s boundaries which cover the NW quadrant at Theodore and Gaylord to the NE quadrant at Rosalind and Farrell Rd, to the SE quadrant at Cherry Hill and Schweizer Rd, and the SW quadrant at Laraway Road and Centerpoint Way of Joliet Illinois. Trips outside of Township Boundaries are available to partner agencies. 

Additional Information

  • Services are contingent upon availability
  • Scheduling must be done with at least two business days’ notice.
  • Emergency transportation services are not provided.

Building Better Transit: Agencies as Partners

A pilot program is currently underway, and additional agency partners are being sought to help bring this to fruition.

By building partnerships Joliet Township Government aims to reduce the incidence of clients falling through the cracks due to missed appointments or follow-ups caused by transportation barriers, thereby fostering a more inclusive community. As a partner agency, your organization can benefit from reliable, low-cost transportation services for clients. We provide an easy way for your staff to request transportation, with clear and consistent communication to ensure no client is left behind. 

Who can Partner?

Any agency that serves our residents and is located within the Joliet Township Government borders may partner with us for the transportation needs of their clients.

The program will facilitate trips for the agency clients to various essential destinations including doctor appointments, grocery stores, pharmacies, medical centers, and community centers.
