Skokie Senior Transit for Area Residents (STAR)
The Village of Skokie offers transportation for qualified Skokie residents through the STAR (Senior Transit for Area Residents) Program. Residents who are at least 65 years of age may participate in the program; younger residents also may participate if they have ADA Paratransit certification.
All members receive curb-to-curb service Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Small, lift-equipped buses are used to ensure accessibility. Travel can be to any destination in Skokie and, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, to specified medical locations outside Skokie. There is no limit on the number of trips a member is allowed to schedule. Members arrange for a ride by calling an hour to two hours in advance, depending on the nature of the trip.
Cost: $15 per month; a discount is offered for multiple-month renewals.
