The City of Warrenville offers a municipal transportation program called ACORN for its senior and special needs residents. The Municipal Van Program transports Warrenville residents from their homes to any destination within a five-mile radius of City Hall (28W701 Stafford Place), including such places as medical facilities, shopping centers, entertainment venues, and friends' homes. Rider transportation hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.; no holidays. During severe weather, service may be canceled for safety reasons. An ACORN Van Registration Form (PDF) must be completed and turned in to City Hall in order to participate in this program.

Questions or complaints can be made to Kristin Youngmeyer at 630-836-3056.
