Illinois Tollway’s Annual Family Safety Fair
Pace Bus will be in attendance for the Seventh Annual Family Safety Fair hosted by the The Illinois Tollway and Illinois Police District 15. This event will showcase services, demonstrations and resources that help keep children safe and parents, grandparents and caregivers worry-free – every trip, every time.
The event brings fun and safety together with family-friendly entertainment and activities and the opportunity for free kids' identification cards and child safety seat inspection and installation.
This year's Family Safety Fair coincides with Child Passenger Safety Week (September 14-20) and National Seat Check Saturday, a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration campaign reminding everyone of the lifesaving effect child safety seats have in protecting children from birth through age 12.
The 7th Annual Family Safety Fair will take place at the Illinois Tollway's headquarters at 2700 Ogden Avenue in Downers Grove.
Pace, in cooperation with the Southwest Conference of Mayors, has initiated a study to develop a transportation and economic development plan for the 95th Street corridor. The study area extends approximately 9 miles from LaGrange Road on the west to Western Avenue on the east and one-half mile north and south of 95th Street. The objective of the study is to identify potential improvements to roadway infrastructure, pedestrian and bicycle environment, and transit operations within this corridor.
Public input regarding travel along the corridor will be sought through stakeholder interviews and an online survey. Pace, Chicago Transit Authority, Regional Transportation Authority, Metra, Illinois Department of Transportation, Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning, and the cities of Bridgeview, Chicago Ridge, Evergreen Park, Hickory Hills, Hometown, Oak Lawn and Palos Hills will form this study’s Steering Committee.
For more information about the 95th Street Corridor Transportation Plan Study or to provide comments, please visit the Information Center section. If you live or work within the study area, please consider spending a few minutes on our survey. Click the image at left to get started.
Express Service to Cubs and White Sox Home Games
Chicago baseball fans are excited for action on the diamonds after the brutally unpleasant winter. Once again, Pace offers the convenient, money-saving option of using Pace' s Express Service to Popular Destinations to get to the game and avoid the hassles of traffic congestion and expensive parking near the ballparks. Fares are $4.00 per fan, each way. Short on cash or don' t have exact fare? Use a Ventra Card or contactless debit or credit card for the quick and easy way to pay.
White Sox fans can ride from any of six free Park-n-Ride lots in Bolingbrook, Palos Heights, Tinley Park, Markham, Burr Ridge and Oak Lawn. The service is available for opening day; weekend and holiday games during the months of April, May and September; and all home games during June, July and August.
Service to Cub games operates from free Park-n-Rides in Schaumburg and Lombard, serving the home opener, night games, weekend and holiday games, and every game in June, July and August. There is no service to daytime weekday games in April, May, September, or October.
For more information about the routes, including departure locations and times, please visit the Express Service to Popular Destinations page.
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.
Since July 1, 2011, the Office of Executive Inspector General for the Agencies of the Illinois Governor (OEIG) has served as the Executive Inspector General for Pace, RTA, CTA, and Metra.
