Alternative Transportation System | Southwestern Illinois College

Welcome to the Alternative Transportation System (ATS). The following information will ensure that you receive the best possible service that ATS can provide.  The system provides transportation for eligible persons certified as being eligible under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Please bear in mind ATS is not a free service. St. Clair County’s policy has provisions for seniors to ride free on fixed Metro Bus or Metro Link services. However, that provision does not apply to paratransit service. All rides with ATS must be paid in the appropriate manner.

ATS also provides reasonable accommodation for individuals with disabilities who without such modifications, would not be able to use transportation services.

Our Vans are equipped with a lift for Wheelchair and Walker accessibility, and other mobility devices.

To use ATS, please follow the procedures on the ATS Service Reminders sheet. Please see the ATS Knowledge Base for common help questions and answers.
