Macomb to Monitor Transit Operations

Macomb, IL – Macomb plans to consolidate the county's public transportation into one system. Mayor Mick Wisslead says the state wants aldermen to pay more attention to how the Go West, Bridgeway, Red Cross, and taxi systems work together. Wisslead says since both federal and state funds go through the city, it is being expected to more closely govern the systems. He says the city has been receiving more than $300,000 dollars yearly for transit. That could increase to more than $1 million.
