CityLink Names Transit Center Lobby in Memory of Lilly

The Greater Peoria Mass Transit District (CityLink) in Peoria, IL, dedicated the lobby of its Transit Center in memory of late General Manager Jerome D. Lilly at ceremonies April 19. Lilly, a 19-year employee of CityLink, died unexpectedly in December 2007 at age 53, only six weeks after taking over the top job.

The program featured comments from CityLink General Manager Tom Lucek and board members; Peoria Mayor Jim Ardis; family members and friends of Lilly; and a performance by the Integrity Choir, a local group of teenage gospel singers.

More than 300 people attended the program.

On April 20—which would have been Lilly’s 55th birthday—CityLink honored him by holding a Passenger Appreciation Day, offering free rides throughout. By the end of the day, the agency reported providing more than 11,000 free rides.
