The Rockford Mass Transit District is dedicated to providing safe, efficient, affordable, dependable and accessible transportation to the residents of Rockford and the surrounding area.
Rockford area veterans with valid service identification will be able to enjoy a free ride on Rockford Mass Transit, Friday, October 31, 2014 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. This free ride for veterans program is being done in conjunction with the 2014 Top of Illinois Stand Down for Veterans sponsored in part by Representative Litesa Wallace’s office.
The Stand Down for Veterans is being held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the UAW Hall, 112 N 2nd Street, Rockford. During that time, various community organizations will be offering services such as medical treatment, employment consultation, Vet Center/VA Help, clothing distribution and hair cuts in an effort to show their appreciation for the sacrifices made by our veterans. RMTD will be showing their appreciation by offering free rides for Veterans from 8 am to 5 pm. It is RMTD’s hope that the free rides will eliminate any transportation barriers and enable every veteran to participate in this event.
The UAW Hall is directly accessible via several RMTD routes including #11 East State Street, #12 Charles Street and the outbound #14 7th Street route. However all routes are free to veterans with appropriate service ID that day. Veterans using the RMTD system that day between 8 am and 5 pm need only board the bus and present their military ID cards to the driver.
Please be advised that effective Monday, 10/20/14 until further notice the following detour is in effect for the # 16 & #17 City Loop route:
City Loop North (Inbound) from 15th Ave: R Seminary, L Morgan, R Winnebago and resume route
