To Stephenson County residents, businesses, agencies and organizations:
Stephenson County is exploring the need for public transportation
for residents of all ages. To apply for the necessary supporting grants,
the County is required to conduct a “needs assessment”
by conducting this Community Survey. It is being distributed throughout
the county – to reach the citizens of Stephenson County through
local agencies, organizations, and businesses.
We need to hear from you. Think about what your needs might be if,
for whatever reason, you could not drive. For instance, will you have
family or friends available all hours of the day to take you to medical
appointments, the grocery store, the drug store, or legal appointments?
Do you have employees who have difficulty getting to work every day
due to lack of adequate transportation?
Let us hear from you! And please let your employees know about the
survey and encourage their participation. The better the response,
the better the information, and the better our chances of success!
For your convenience, you can complete the survey online at:

Use County Code 177
If you could distribute surveys where you work or live, please contact
