Annual Meeting Award winners


"South Shore Clean Cites, Inc. recognized individuals, businesses and municipalities during the 2012 annual meeting for their efforts in implementing alternative fuels and lowering toxic emissions.

"The five honorees have proven that strengthening the economy and implementing environmentally cleaner sources of power are not mutually exclusive," said Lisek, who also is an executive at Purdue Research Park-based Legacy Environmental Services Inc.

RBA Bus Service

Help save RBA bus service

All RBA bus service, including easygo Lake Transit Chicago, easygo Complementary Paratransit services and easygo Chicago Express is set to cease operations at the end of June 30, 2012, because there is no local permanent revenue commitment to continue to fund the services provided by the Regional Bus Authority.   

RBA board members and staff are working diligently with elected state, county and local officials to find immediate funding to save services and a long-term commitment for the services Lake County residents should enjoy. Without immediate action, more than 30,000 rides per month taken by people who live in Lake County will disappear-possibly forever.
