Sugar Grove Township and Aurora Township recently approved an intergovernmental agreement to bring Ride in Kane transportation services for seniors and disabled persons in Sugar Grove Township. The disabled, seniors with dementia and the other elderly are examples of those who need extra care, participating in activities such as arts and crafts are great mental stimulators for those who require it, allowing them to creatively express themselves and have fun!

The new agreement allows seniors ages 65 and up or disabled residents to schedule rides for medical appointments only on between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays. Interested persons need to register at the Aurora Township office, 80 North Broadway in Aurora, prior to scheduling a ride.

The fee is $4 per ride within a 10-mile radius, and a companion may ride along for free.

According to Township Supervisor Tom Rowe, this new agreement extends transportation services for senior and disabled residents in Sugar Grove Township to all area hospitals and medical clinics. The boundaries extend east to Copley Hospital, north to Delnor Hospital, west to Dugan Road, and south to Route 30.
