New year, new commute!

Pace’s improved service offers job access to and from the northwest suburbs

I-90 Express Bus pic 


On December 19, 2016, Pace launched phase 2 of the I-90 Market Expansion Program, which includes six new bus routes (Express Routes 603, 605 and 607; Local Routes 604, 608 and 611); improvements to service on five existing routes (550, 600, 606, 610 and 616); a new Park-n-Ride at I-90 and Randall Road; and 25 new 40’ express buses. Pace’s new buses have free Wi-Fi, USB charging ports (located under the seats), and comfortable high-back seating, interior overhead storage. Convenient connections to O-Hare and Chicago are available via the CTA Blue Line at the Rosemont Transit Center. The new services have a regular fare of $1.75 ($2 with cash). Click here for full explanation of service changes.

Approximate travel times:

  • 38 min Elgin Transportation Center ↔ Rosemont Transit Center
  • 38 min I-90/Randall Road Park-n-Ride Station ↔ Rosemont Transit Center
  • 27 min Northwest Transportation Center ↔ Rosemont Transit Center
  • 29 min I-90/Randall Road Park-n-Ride Station ↔ Northwest Transportation Center

More to come in 2017

I-90 SmartRoad and Flex Lane

As part of the I-90 Rebuilding and Widening Project, the entire I-90 corridor has been reconstructed to include flexible infrastructure to enable the Tollway to add new "smart" features as needed or as they become available in the years to come. The new I-90 SmartRoad will feature integrated transit with Pace, which will create the option for Pace buses to travel in the new Flex Lanes (inside lanes and shoulders) on I-90 to route around congestion and provide more reliable service.

When Pace begins to use the I-90 Flex Lane in the summer of 2017, schedules may be adjusted to reflect the faster trip times.

Two new park-n-ride stations, improved pedestrian infrastructure, and another new route

Barrington Rd Station Plan 

Later this year, Pace will open two more free park-n-ride stations. Pace’s I-90/IL 25 Park-n-Ride Station will be located on IL Route 25 just off of I-90, will have 199 spaces, and will be served by Routes 543, 603, 605 and 607. Pace’s I-90/Barrington Road Park-n-Ride Station will be located on Barrington Road just off of I-90, will have approximately 170 spaces, and will be served by Routes 603, 605 and 607.

Pace’s I-90/Barrington Road Park-n-Ride Station is an innovative passenger facility which will board and alight (pick up and drop off) express route passengers at a time-saving on-highway bus stop. This station will be accessible by a pedestrian bridge and an underpass crossing for park-n-ride and kiss-n-ride access.

A new Barrington Road distributor service will operate between the kiss-n-ride at the Pace I-90/Barrington Road Park-n-Ride Station and nearby residential and business centers south of I-90. It will operate all day Monday through Saturday.
