Pace′s Illinois Route 390 Tollway Corridor Service Study seeks to identify
and evaluate public transit service options that may be available as a result
of construction of the new Tollway between Lake Street and Illinois Route 83
as part of the Illinois Tollway′s Elgin O′Hare Western Access (EOWA)
The study will examine existing and potential public transit markets in the
area and make recommendations for future service to serve this growing area.
The project will consist of a market analysis, draft recommendations, and a final
implementation plan and financial plan. It will also include committee meetings
and focus groups, described below.
Pace will convene two committees to help guide the Corridor Service Study
and to ensure recommendations included in the Corridor Service Study are feasible
Technical Advisory Committee (TAC)
The Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) will be comprised of representatives
from DuPage and Cook County Transportation Departments, the Councils of Government,
Illinois Tollway, IDOT, CMAP, CTA, Metra, and RTA. The TAC will meet several
times throughout the study to provide guidance, technical expertise, and assist
with the development and vetting of potential service recommendations.

The project team will also establish a Local Advisory Committee (LAC), which
will be comprised of elected officials, civic leaders, and community representatives
within the study area area and will meet in conjunction with the Tollway′s
existing Elgin O′Hare Western Access Local Advisory Committee. The LAC
meetings will provide an opportunity for local partners and stakeholders to provide
input during the development of a feasible service plan and help build consensus
among municipal leaders.

Pace will also convene two focus groups as part of
the Corridor Service Study. A local business/employee focus group and local community
service organizations focus group will assist with identifying and assessing prospective
Pace users in the corridor and will help identify transit needs from these potential
markets. These efforts will help inform the potential market and resulting service
type within the corridor. Each focus group will meet once during the study. The
focus groups meetings are anticipated to occur in Fall 2016.
