GPMTD to Host 3rd Annual ADA WOW! Celebration & Resource Fair on July 26, 2024

The Greater Peoria Mass Transit District (GPMTD) is hosting its 3rd Annual ADA WOW! Celebration & Resource Fair on Friday, July 26, 2024 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at EP!C, 1913 W Townline Rd, Peoria, IL 61615. The event is FREE to the public and will be a celebration of the 34th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and will offer valuable resources to the local ADA community. The GPMTD ADA Committee, chaired by GPMTD Board Trustee Patti Sterling Polk, is spearheading this event for the third year.

“It is with great enthusiasm that the GPMTD ADA Committee and staff has planned for the 3rd Annual ADA WOW! Celebration & Resource Fair. The addition of several new resources and vendors is proof that this event is growing to meet a need in the Peoria area. It is a positive and age inclusive opportunity for the local ADA community to learn about the resources available to them.”

GPMTD Board Trustee Patti Sterling Polk

Vendors will be available to provide information on their services, products and will hand out free giveaways to attendees. Face painting, balloon animals, music, pulled pork sandwiches and popcorn will be available as part of our celebration for guests of all ages to enjoy. There will also be several baskets being raffled off throughout the event.

Free bus shuttle service will be available for the event and will depart from the Transit Center at 4:10 p.m. to EP!C, and will return after the event ends at 6:45 p.m.. As an additional option, attendees may also ride CityLink’s fixed route #1 University to EP!C at its normal scheduled time for the regular bus rate.

GPMTD’s transportation services – CityLink (fixed route), CityLift (paratransit) and CountyLink (rural) – will have vehicles on-site to showcase their accessibility features. Parking for event attendees will be in front of EP!C.

The July 26 date was chosen for the event because it is the anniversary of when the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law on July 26, 1990, by President George H.W. Bush.
