CityLink Receives Praise from Chaddick Institute at DePaul University

CityLink General Manager Doug Roelfs.

Last year, CityLink was selected to participate in a study of downstate transportation operations completed by the Chaddick Institute for Metropolitan Development at DePaul University.

Upon completion of the study, CityLink received praise for Municipal Excellence in transit planning, including:

  • Highest rates of transit ridership on a per person basis in the state
  • Commitment to starting and maintaining Sunday bus service
  • Downtown Peoria Transit Center is well maintained and in a good location for both work and entertainment

The research collected from this study was published as “Promoting Alternatives to Private Vehicle Travel in Illinois Cities: Five Case Studies of Excellence,” and the article will be included in this year’s edition of the Illinois Municipal Policy Journal.

On March 6, CityLink General Manager Doug Roelfs attended a seminar in Chicago and accepted an award on behalf of CityLink from the Chaddick Institute for Recognition of Excellence in Public Transit as an Alternative to Auto Travel.

Back in December 2018, an article was published in the Peoria Journal Star regarding the praise CityLink received from this study. You can read the article online at the following link: https://bit.ly/2W4AivL
