Pace sets meeting dates for budget public hearings

Passengers at Bus stop

Pace is pleased to announce its schedule of budget public hearings to be held in 13 locations throughout the agency′s six-county service area during the last two weeks in October. Four hearings will be held in Chicago, four in suburban Cook County, and one each in DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry and Will counties.

The proposed budget is balanced and includes $7.6 million of new service, including $6.6 million for a full year of service implemented in late 2015 and an additional $1 million of new service to begin in late 2016. Another key proposal is a $0.25 fare increase impacting only fixed route customers who pay with cash- customers using Ventra would not be affected. The higher cash fare, which would bring Pace in line with similar policies in place for several years at other transit and transportation agencies in the region, encourages the use of Ventra versus cash in order to mitigate the costs associated with collecting and handling cash. Ventra offers a number of money-saving benefits to customers, including a secure, account-based system and the ability to buy passes and $0.25 transfer fares when changing routes.

The Regional ADA Paratransit Budget is also balanced and maintains current service levels and fares, although the status of an $8.5 million state grant for paratransit operations received annually since 2009 has not been determined. If that funding is not received, a fare increase could be proposed at a later date.

The booklet detailing Pace′s 2016 proposed budget will be available for download following the public release of the budget by the Pace Board of Directors on October 14.
