Logan Mason Public Transportation

Announcement - Beginning August 1, 2012 Senior
Transportation is now Logan Mason Public Transportation (LMPT). 

Mission Statement
The mission of LMPT is to enhance the independence, opportunities and lives of all residents with affordable, reliable and accessible transportation.  The LMPT team pledges to provide courteous service to our customers and aggressively meet the changing needs of our region.

What is LMPT?

Logan Mason Public Transportation (LMPT) is the result of Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois, Logan and Mason Counties and Area Agency on Aging of Lincolnland coming together to recognize a need for public transportation within the counties and developing a program to meet those needs.

LMPT is a “Demand Response” system.  This system requires passengers call at least 24 hours in advance to schedule their rides.  When scheduling they will determine with the dispatcher the location of pick-up, time of pick-up, any special needs and destination of the trip.  LMPT has a fleet of vehicles including 6 vans and 1 sedan.  All vans are equipped with wheelchair lifts.  

Transportation is also available to Community Action social dining sites, banks, grocery stores, and for other necessary trips.

Funding for the Logan Mason Public Transportation program is provided in part thanks to the support of United Way of Logan County, Area Agency on Aging for Lincolnland, Logan County Senior Tax monies and local support.
