Vanpool Service Will Provide Service and Jobs to Students

Through an agreement with Palos Heights and Pace suburban bus service, Trinity students will soon have another option in local transportation—and another job opportunity through the work-study program.

Working with Mayor Bob Straz and Pace, President Steve Timmermans and Mike Fox, vice president for finance and administration, have entered into an agreement that will provide vanpool service for both Trinity students and local senior citizens. Not only will students have transportation to scheduled stops such as the Metra train station and other community destinations, they will also have another job option as student drivers through the College’s work-study program.

Days and hours of operation are still to be determined. But according to Fox, “A good portion of the hours on Thursday and Friday, along with all day Saturday, will allow you to request a ride to any location in the City of Palos Heights.”

The standard route will include one stop outside of the city at the Village apartments in Worth, Trinity’s off-campus junior and senior housing. Cost is $1 per ride in any direction.

The vehicle will be handicap accessible, offering service to wheelchair users.
