Thank you for choosing NCAT!


Did you know that public transportation is a federal, state, and local partnership? NCAT receives federal and state grants that require a local match portion. Without the support of organizations, municipalities, and individual contributions from our community members, public transportation in LaSalle County would not be possible.

NCAT is hosting its first ever BOWLING FUNDRAISER to help raise those local matching funds. Join us on April 13th at the Illinois Valley Super Bowl for a fun and fundraising!! There will raffles, games, 50/50, and more! Registration begins at 12:15pm, bowling at 1:00pm.

$25 per bowler. Click here to register yourself or a team! Up to 6 bowlers per lane.

Would you like to donate to the event? We are looking for lane sponsors and/or raffle basket donations! Download an Event Sponsorship from or call Kim or Alicia at 833-433-6228
