The Village of Skokie offers transportation for qualified Skokie residents through the STAR 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., reservation line closes at 2:45 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. Members arrange for a ride by calling an hour to two hours in advance, depending on the nature of the trip.

STAR costs $15 per month, however a discount is offered for multiple-month renewals.
