The Village is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Kendall Area Transit for Oswego’s public transportation needs. As of January 2nd, Kendall Area Transit, or KAT, will be the new provider for the new Park-N-Ride as well as the Dial-A-Ride.
The Oswego Park-N-Ride is a shuttle Service for Metra BNSF commuters and operates between the Oswego Park and Ride lot (located at the corner of Mill and Orchard Road) and the Downtown Aurora Transportation Center. The shuttle operates Monday through Friday in the mornings and afternoon and targets Metra BNSF line express commuter trains to Chicago and Aurora. The new Park-N-Ride service provided by KAT will add two morning and two afternoon routes to the present Park-N-Ride schedule.
Daily One Way Fare is $3.50, a 10-Ride pass is $17.50, and the monthly pass is $30.00. Monthly and 10-Ride passes can be purchased at Oswego Village Hall and on the Village website and the Oswego Police Station as well at Yorkville, Plano and Montgomery’s Village Hall. One way tickets can only be purchased on the bus from the driver and exact fare is required.
Kendall Area Transit also offers Dial-A-Ride service. Dial-A-Ride serves the Oswego community with curb-to-curb and door-to-door dial-a-ride services within Kendall County and designated locations outside the county. It is a general public transportation service with a priority for the disabled and seniors. KAT operators are trained to assist riders with mobility issues from their door to the bus and from the bus to the door of their destination. When a rider’s needs are beyond the responsibility of the drive, a travel assistant is required and may ride at noextra charge.
Transit service is available from 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding Holidays. The One-way fare for the KAT dial-a-ride service is $3.00 and $5.00 for round trip fares. For designations outside of the county, an additional $2.00 fee will be added. Seniors (60 years of age and older) receive a $1.00 off all fares and Children 7 years and younger ride free with a paying adult.
