Beginning January 1, 2021, the City of DeKalb, the City of Sycamore, and the Town of Cortland paratransit and deviated flex route services will be operated and managed by Transdev Services Inc. Until that time, the Voluntary Action Center of Northern Illinois will continue to operate and provide all paratransit and deviated flex route services within the DeKalb Urbanized Area including door-to-door, on demand, non-emergency medical transportation, and the Route 21.
Transdev Services Inc. currently provides the Huskie Line fixed route public transportation service and has been involved with DeKalb public transportation since the inception of the Huskie Line in 1971. Transdev operates a variety of fixed route and paratransit service contracts across the country and will utilize their experience and resources to maximize the passenger experience for all City of DeKalb Public Transit users.
To ensure a smooth transition of services between providers, representatives from the City of DeKalb, Voluntary Action Center of Northern Illinois, and Transdev Services Inc. are holding weekly meetings to discuss all operational and administrative aspects of the service and to prepare for the transition at the beginning of the year.
