Plainfield Township is proud to offer exceptional services to senior residents.
The Senior Shuttle Bus Program was created to meet a demand in our community for affordable rides to doctor's appointments, pharmacy, grocery store, mall, salon, exercise class, social activities and more. Shuttle service runs five days a week from 8am until 3pm. The cost is $2.00 one way or $4 round trip. Participants will need to complete a passenger appl.pdf form and return it to the township prior to scheduling a ride. Please call (815) 436-1112 for further information. 2013 SHUTTLE BROCHURE Final w pics.pdf
