Public meetings announced for proposed Fox Valley/Aurora-area service changes

Using a survey, focus groups and other means of data gathering, Pace developed a comprehensive set of proposed service changes in response to the feedback received in order to provide more convenient service to existing transit riders, and to attract new riders to the Pace system.

More information about the data collected and the proposed service changes is available on Pace’s Fox Valley Initiative page.

Additionally, a set of four public meetings has been announced to present the proposed service changes and to provide the opportunity to ask questions and give feedback. The public forums are scheduled as follows:

Saturday, June 20, 2015, 10am – 1pm
Prisco Community Center
150 West Illinois Avenue
Aurora, IL 60506

Thursday, June 25, 2015, 3pm – 6pm

Implementation of the plan is scheduled to take place in two phases, the first in October, which will focus on central Aurora and areas north of the city.

Chicago Paratransit Vehicle


Paratransit Pick Up/Drop Off Points at Popular Destinations

Pace has developed specific bus stops for paratransit customers to use when visiting some of Chicago′s most popular destinations. This will make it easier for customers to find their vehicle, and for the vehicle to find customers at locations that are crowded or where it could be confusing. Customers who are being picked up at these locations should look for the Pace bus stop sign in the area listed with each destination. Also, vehicles will use these same locations to drop off passengers at these destinations.
