To qualify as a disabled rider, some Ride in Kane sponsors require that individuals obtain a Reduced Fare Permit through the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA). If you already have a RTA Ride Free Permit or RTA ADA Paratransit Permit, you do not need to apply for a Reduced Fare Permit, as these permits will also serve as proof of disability.

To obtain a Reduced Fare Program application, call the RTA Mobility Services Helpline at (312) 663-4357 (HELP) and press option 3 on the main menu.

In addition, agencies that serve people with disabilities and older adults can also receive information on RTA programs and services by requesting an informational presentation or participation in a resource fare by calling the RTA Mobility Outreach Program at (312) 913-3203.
