public transportation

Rock Island County Metropolitan Mass Transit District

Starting this week, the Quad Cities becomes the first area in Illinois to offer electric-powered buses through its public transit system.

Davenport CitiBus

After months of planning and public meetings, Davenport could change when and where residents use public transportation. Tonight, the city council will take a final vote on proposed route changes for CitiBus.

The Jule

More Dubuque residents are using public transportation. In October, the city broke the record for the most rides in one month on the Jule transit system. Director of Transit Operations, Candace Eudaley-Loebach, says over 50,000 people rode the Jule in October, a 17 percent increase from the previous year. And, she credits the restructuring done last January. 

The increase in riders is also because of partnerships with area schools and residents' desire to save money and energy.   

Eudaley-Loebach says the goal is to reduce congestion on roads in Dubuque.
