ETrax Offers Free Rides for Seniors, Persons with Disabilities, and Veterans

On February 20th, 2024, the Effingham County Board voted to approve a disbursement of $10,000.00 in funding to the Effingham County Public Transportation ETrax program to allow for free rides for Effingham County residents who are senior citizens, persons with disabilities, or veterans.

ECPT has developed a Reduced Fare ID Card to allow for county residents meeting the qualifications for free rides as specified by the County Board to make use of the funding received.

ECPT has requested qualified individuals to complete an application and submit to CEFS.  Applications can be emailed to or mailed to CEFS Central Illinois Public Transit, PO Box 928, Effingham, IL, 62401.  Applications may also be dropped off in person at the CEFS Effingham Dispatch Office, 2201 Willenborg St. #6, Effingham, IL, 62401.
