Illinois Department of Transportation

[I] make no pretense of being the last word on the subject of autistic children. …more appropriate to call it one of the first words.

On the Road Again


On September 30th Rimland received two Dodge mini vans from the Illinois Department of Transportation. These are the final two vehicles of the five vans awarded to Rimland from our 2014 grant application to the Illinois Department of Transportation. The two vans are six-passenger vehicles equipped with a wheelchair ramp and tie-down equipment to secure a wheelchair passenger.  We have submitted a 2016 application for additional vehicles and hope to hear back soon.
