LOTS Funding

Lee County is the Grantee for Lee-Ogle Transportation System. The County receives funding from the Illinois Department of Transportation via several different programs: the Federal Transportation Administration’s 5311 program, the State of Illinois Downstate Operating Assistance Program, 5311F funding for two Intercity Bus/Greyhound Connect routes (I-88 and I-39) and the Downstate Capital Improvement Fund.

Lee-Ogle Transportation System relies on local matching dollars to fulfill the Grant requirements. Local match components is generated through provider organizations of the system, local agency partnerships and individual donations. If your agency is interested in a service contract for clients, please contact either Greg Gates (Director of LOTS) or Kari Wolfe (Assistant Director) at (815) 288-2117.
