Stateline Mass Transit celebrates five years Feb. 27
ROCKTON, Ill. — Stateline Mass Transit District (SMTD) will celebrate its five-year anniversary with an open house from 5 to 7 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 27, at Rockton Township Town Hall, 1315 N. Blackhawk Blvd., Rockton, Ill.
“The informal open house is our way of thanking the community for five successful years of providing safe, affordable transportation,” said SMTD Executive Director Sharon Hecox. “The residents of South Beloit, Rockton, Roscoe and Rockton Township are very fortunate to have this excellent service. SMTD is not just about providing transportation — we’re about providing independence and a quality of life for many people.”
The five-year anniversary celebration is open to the public, and those attending can enter for a chance to win a Kindle Reader. Cake, cookies and snacks will be provided. The event is hosted by the SMTD Board of Trustees. The newest bus of the fleet will be on site for viewing.
Since 2008, SMTD has offered low-cost, “dial-a-ride” bus service for South Beloit, Rockton, Roscoe and Rockton Township residents. SMTD buses will pick up riders at their homes and take them to any destination in the participating communities.
The curb-to-curb service is not just for seniors and the disabled, but is ideal for commuters, medical appointments, shopping or any destination inside the service area deemed necessary by the rider.
