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.
