Our Mission

As a rural county transportation system, Piattran’s mission is to provide accessible transportation to the general public that travel within or to Piatt County, IL. Anyone can ride Piattran. However, school age children are transported only when school bus service is not available or when they require special assistance not offered by school bus services. Piattran’s bus fleet is fully accessible with lifts and securements for mobility devices not exceeding 800 lbs.
