TAP rides will buy Chicago taxi trips worth up to $20 starting
Effective February 1, when you purchase a TAP ride, your money will take
you farther! Pace will now pay for rides costing up to $20 - and the cost to
you will still be just $3 using your TAP card.
If your trip costs more than $20, you'll still have to pay the taxi driver
the extra amount. For example, if your ride costs $21, you'll swipe your TAP
card for the $3 fare and pay the extra $1 at the end of your ride. TAP is a
program that applies only to taxi rides originating in the City of Chicago.
Visit TAPandMD.com or call (800) 606-1282
(option 4) for more information!
Anyone who has received ADA Paratransit certification from the RTA
is eligible to request a TAP card.
ADA News launches in city and suburbs
Newsletter to provide service updates and address frequently asked questions
about Pace ADA Paratransit Service
As part of Pace's ongoing efforts to boost passenger communications, Pace
recently launched newsletters created for suburban and City of Chicago Pace
ADA Paratransit Service riders. Pace's ADA News originated with a request
ADA Committees who alerted Pace to the need for a central source for service
information. To meet that need, Pace created quarterly newsletters to update
riders about ADA service improvements and provide answers to common questions.
The newsletters will be distributed on ADA paratransit vehicles, distributed
to community centers like libraries and workshops for people with disabilities,
and recorded on the Pace Newsline (847-228-2322). To request alternative formats,
including Braille and large print, or to request a copy by mail, please contact
Relations by phone at 847-364-7223, option 3, or by email at Passenger.Services@PaceBus.com.
On July 15, 2016, Pace will implement two important changes for Chicago ADA
1. There will be a new, special number to call to check
on the status of your ride. This number can be used to check on trips booked
through any Chicago ADA carrier. This number cannot be used to book trips, only
to check on their status.
To check on the status of your trip, call 1-800-606-1282 and press
option one. Passengers will continue to call their current carrier
to book trips.
2. Trips will be distributed among all Chicago ADA carriers,
regardless of zone. That means a different carrier than the one you called to
book your trip may pick you up. You will continue to call the same number
you currently do to book your trips. Please note that all carrier vehicles
are marked with a Pace logo.
These changes are for Chicago riders only. Suburban ADA riders are
