To have access to effective public transit, every step of the user’s trip must be accessible, efficient, safe, and comfortable. Whether or not one has transportation alternatives, transit is a critical component to quality of life. The transit system must eliminate barriers – real or perceived – in order to make it a viable or preferred alternative. That system, from your front door to the bus, is the subject of these guidelines. The goal of the Transit Supportive Guidelines for the Chicagoland Region is to foster reliable, efficient, convenient, and accessible transit in communities throughout the Chicago region that are served by Pace Suburban Bus Transit.
