Our Proud Chicago Paratransit History
CDT is founded to provide transportation for Illinois Department of Public Aid. CDT is the area's first transportation program to use dedicated vehicles and a flat service rate.
CDT wins the bid to provide transportation for disabled riders in the City of Chicago through the Mayor's Office for Senior Citizens and Handicapped(MOSCH).
CDT becomes 1 of 4 private carriers contracted by the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) to provide transportation for the disabled community in Chicago. For over 21 years, more customers choose to ride with CDT than all the other carriers combined.
CDT implements the Teletrac Vehicle Locator (AVL) system to improve demand-response dispatching capabilities and on-time performances.
CDT implements the in-vehicle Mobile Data Terminal (MDT) system so drivers can post trip data in real time, improving CDT's customer service capabilities and eliminating costly paperwork, saving CTA thousands of dollars.
CDT begins a partnership with Pace, which now manages the Chicago ADA Service Area.
CDT is purchased by National Express on July 1st, 2017.
