Highland offers Rider Cards for student transportation to campus

Jo Daviess County Transit (JDCT) is making transportation available to Highland students to offer rides to the Freeport campus to attend classes. Rider Cards may be purchased at the J. Rosemary Shockey Bookstore at Highland Community College. The punch card costs $10.

It is a curb-to-curb pick up for a cost of $1 per one-way ride for Highland students. Financial aid may be used to purchase the Rider Cards. Jo Daviess County Transit is a federal and state subsidized public transportation system operated by The Workshop with support from Jo Daviess County Board, Townships and Illinois Department of Transportation.

Jo Daviess County Transit (JDCT) operates a demand responsive service. There are no fixed routes or designated stops for getting on or off the vehicles. Service animals are allowed on the vehicles; persons using respirators or portable oxygen will not be denied.

Rides are only scheduled upon request. Passengers must call 815-777-8088 at least 24 hours in advance, Monday through Friday, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. to schedule transportation. Cancellations should be made 24 hours in advance or as soon as possible, with a minimum one hour notice. In cases of inclement weather, JDCT will contact passengers on an individual basis.
