Pace conveniently carries commuters throughout the region using a set schedule
trips and efficient routing. Fixed routes serve more than 210 municipalities
and carry over 2.88 million riders per month. Buses have priority seating and
hydraulic kneel to ensure a safe rider experience for seniors and people with
disabilities. All buses have bike racks (capacity: 2 adult bikes).
Pace's Express Service Network is designed to improve connectivity throughout
Northeast Illinois and provide access to jobs, schools and medical care that
may not be available in a rider's local area. Route 755 and 855 will provide
premium service between Plainfield and downtown Chicago, with intermediate stops
in Bolingbrook, Ashland CTA station, East Loop and the Illinois Medical District.
Vanpool Incentive Program is now the second largest vanpool program in the
country. The vanpool program provides passenger vans to small groups of 5-14
people traveling together to and from work. Each rider pays a low monthly fare
based on distance and number of participants. Fares cover all costs of the vanpool.
Vanpool is an excellent transit solution in areas where population density cannot
support fixed route bus service.
Van Not-for-profit human service organizations provide work commute for
persons with disabilities
Community Vehicle Program
Pace provides a non-traditional, flexible approach to transportation with
Community Vehicle Program. Communities with limited demand for fixed route service
may customize these programs to best serve their residents.
ADA service provides pre-arranged origin-to-destination trips for persons
with disabilities whose eligibility has been determined by the regional certification
process. ADA services operate in Chicago and all suburban areas that are within
3/4 mile of Pace's regular fixed routes, during the same hours of operation.
ADA service subscribers who qualify for Illinois Circuit Breaker can take advantage
of riding fixed route for free.
