Lee County is the Grantee for Lee-Ogle Transportation System. The program is funded through the Federal Transportation Administration 5311 Program and the State of Illinois Downstate Operating Assistance Program (DOAP) as well as several other projects such as Intercity Bus/Greyhound Connect (two grants) and the Downstate Capital Improvement Fund.
Lee-Ogle Transportation System relies on local matching dollars to fulfill the Grant requirements. Local match components can be generated through local agency partnerships and well as individual donations. If your agency is interested in a service contract for your clients, please contact either Greg Gates (Director of LOTS) or Kari Wolfe (Assistant Director) at (815) 288-2117.
