To me is no different than Caravan you still need to call in 24hr ahead to be able to catch a ride.

Roscoe TOWNSHIP elected to NOT spend the money to join this project. Although it may be very much like Caravan, it is still a valuable service that some people could really use. I have a disabled son who will attend Rock Valley next year and I was hoping that this service could help him get there. RAMP thought so, too, until we filled out the application and found out that Roscoe VILLAGE, Rockton VILLAGE, Rockton TOWNSHIP and South
Beloit ALL joined this effort, but NOT the TOWNSHIP of Roscoe. Even though I live smack dab in the middle of the Roscoe & Rockton villages, I cannot use this service. I even inquired about having him picked up somewhere in Roscoe Village (would still be a help to me) NOPE - I'm a township resident. I inquired about my being able to pay a fee to the Township to get this service for my son. NOPE. I realize that we live in a community where most of us own multiple cars, but there are still alot of disabled people who cannot drive and senior citizens who would use this service. There is an annual township meeting at the Township Offices at 7pm on April 8th. I encourage anyone who feels as I do to attend this meeting. This is something that should have been put to a vote, not decided by a handful of people.
