TRANSPORTATION FOR RURAL AREAS OF MADISON COUNTY (TRAM)

TRAM was established in September 1985 as a demand response transit system for rural residents of Madison County. Riders are requested to make arrangements for transportation at least 24 hours in advance. Vouchers are purchased from drivers as the riders board the vans. Arrangements may also be made for billing organizations such as school systems, for whom TRAM provides a valuable service for handicapped students. Revenues collected from users are accounted for by the private provider administrative personnel and deducted from the reimbursement issued by the county. LifeStream Services, Inc. is the private provider of TRAM, and the service goes by the name of "The New InterUrban". Strict control and record reviews are performed by MCCOG staff monthly prior to a reimbursement check being issued to the provider.
