West Cook County service improvements effective Nov. 22
New and modified bus service is coming to western Cook County!
Pace staff reviewed customer travel patterns, ridership data and feedback received from riders to realign some routes, create new ones, and add service to others. More information is available via a service change notice placed on buses, as well as passenger notices with specific information for each route, which can also be found on buses operating in the near-western suburbs.
To make it easier to get and reload your Ventra Card, Pace has installed a number of vending machines throughout the suburbs. In addition to buying passes and reload Ventra accounts at hundreds of retail stores and CTA rail stations, online at VentraChicago.com or by phone at 877.NOW.VENTRA, Pace has installed Ventra vending machines at the following locations:
These machines make it even more convenient for Pace riders to use Ventra.
At any vending machine, customers can reload transit value, load Pace or CTA
passes to their account, check their balance, and even get a new card. The machines
take cash and credit/debit cards. Riders eligible for reduced or student fares
are automatically able to load the reduced fare products to their accounts at
any vending machine.

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.
