Millions in Gaming Losses Only Translate to Tens of Thousands for Cities

If you use NCAT – North Central Area Transit – prepare for a reduction in services.  According to Wayne Cyzy, transit manager, because the State is unable to reimburse NCAT for the money it is owed, NCAT is forced to reduce its transportation services starting December 5.

This includes operating only from 8:00 to 4:30pm., not adding any additional routes, rides from Streator to Peru will be offered only on Tuesday.  Rides to Earlville, Seneca, Lostant, Rutland, Ransom and others will be offered on a limited and space availability basis.   IVCC riders, in the Spring Semester, will only have group pick-up times of 8:00am, Noon, and 3pm. There are other adjustments as well.

NCAT has been in operation for 3 years, but like other similar transport systems is taking the hit because on a budget impasse.
