Last month, PowerForward DuPage hosted DuPage County’s John Noel Public Transit Conference, which focused on improving transit connectivity and “last mile” options for reverse commuters coming into DuPage County. Representatives from the RTA, Metra, PACE, and DuPage County participated in the day-long workshop and breakout sessions. Attendees discussed alternative transit solutions, such as Uber, Lyft, Zagster, Getaround, and Innova EV, who actually brought two of their DASH vehicles to the conference. These electric vehicles are currently participating in pilot programs at four universities and will soon be featured as a “last mile” transportation solution for Metra commuters in Itasca working at Hamilton Lakes Business Park.
