About the Study
DeKalb Sycamore Area Transportation Study (DSATS) tries to conduct a comprehensive transit analysis every 5 years, usually in conjunction with the Long Range Transportation Plan update. These studies are sponsored by the DSATS and the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT).
Transit planning is essential to guide the management, operation, and financial functions of transportation systems. These studies have resulted in a plan to guide decision makers to improve the existing transportation service in the cities of DeKalb and Sycamore as well as all of DeKalb County.
