Public Transit Home
The private automobile is currently dominant in DuPage; however, existing public transportation provides indispensable service to many who live and work in the County. DuPage County has three primary types of public transit services: commuter rail, general public bus service and vanpools, and special needs service (paratransit). In addition, there are several park-n-ride lots to support commuter's use of transit.
In addition to existing transit service, DuPage County has been working proactively to enhance transit amenities and services. Included in these efforts are implementation of the DuPage Area Transit Plan participation in the Cook-DuPage Corridor Study, and implementation of the DuPage County Transit Shelter Program.
