The Levy Senior Center is a designated RTA registration site to apply for your RTA Reduced Fare Card! The RTA Reduced Fare Card enables senior citizens who are within three weeks of their 65th birthday or older, qualified veterans, and qualified persons with disabilities to ride all RTA services at a reduced rate. Senior citizens must apply in person at a designated Senior Center (including the Levy Senior Center).

You must have a copy of one of the following types of identification: driver's license, State of Illinois ID card, alien registration card or passport. You also need a wallet-sized color photo. The person in the photo cannot wear a hat, scarf or sunglasses. The Levy Center will take your photo at no charge during office hours.
