The Lake County Coordinated Transportation Services Committee’s (LCCTSC) Ride Lake County West began in January of 2010 to provide curb-to-curb dial-a-ride transportation service in the northwest townships of Lake County: Antioch, Avon, Grant, and Lake Villa.  In September 2012, the NW Demo expanded services to the townships of Fremont and Wauconda.  Eligible residents of Lake County’s west and northwest townships of Antioch, Grant, Lake Villa, Avon, Wauconda and Fremont, have Pace curb-to-curb dial-a-ride service within this designated area. Service also extends to the Gurnee Mills area, Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, and the downtown Mundelein area.

This service is sponsored by the six townships, with assistance from the Lake County Coordinated Transportation Services Committee (LCCTSC), Lake County, and Pace Suburban Bus. The service is funded in part by grants from the Regional Transportation Authority. Local matching funds for these federal grants are provided by Lake County and Pace Suburban Bus.
