Upcoming Service Improvements for
Pace South & Southwest Division Passengers

Effective Sunday, November 23, 2008

This summary provides details about the service improvements being implemented on South & Southwest Division Routes as part of Phase 1 of the South Cook County Will County Restructuring Initiative. These changes involve three specific service areas, which are described below and shown in the attached maps.

 

  1. Posted stop service on routes operating in corridors with CTA service in Chicago

    (South Division Routes 349, 352, 353 & 359)

    (Southwest Division Routes 379, 381, 382, 383, 384, 385 & 386)

To reduce duplication of service in corridors that also have CTA service in the city of Chicago while maintaining route connections at major cross streets and speeding up service for Pace riders, eleven routes will serve POSTED STOPS ONLY in the following corridors:

To improve service to the 5th Municipal District Circuit Courthouse in Bridgeview and provide better, more frequent connections between Routes 381 and 386 and to improve service to Pace Southwest Division, the routing in Bridgeview, Hickory Hills and Palos Hills for these routes is being adjusted. Routing for the new segments is described below.

Route 386:
All trips will operate using the current routing via Harlem Ave - 100th Pl - 76th Ave - the current routing via Harlem Ave - 95th St - 76th Ave is being discontinued.
