Posted-stops-only conversion project
Pace is in the process of converting all of its bus routes to a posted-stops-only
operation, in which riders would be able to get on and off only at posted bus
stop signs. This conversion process involves selecting stops (maximizing safety,
ease of access, and bus operational efficiency), installing signs with the updated
Pace logo, and informing stakeholders about where boarding and alighting can
What you can expect
Riders of every Pace route will eventually be notified that the route you
ride is being converted to a posted-stops-only operation, with an effective date
of that change. Riders looking to stay informed should
sign up for e-mail alerts or joining Pace on
that conversion is announced, the printed and online version of bus schedules
will contain a "posted stops only" notation.
Furthermore, riders will receive an on-board handout, well in advance of the
conversion date, to inform them of the date of the change, and the location of
every bus stop along the route. This handout will also be available
online. That way, riders will know where
they can get on or off a Pace bus.
Stakeholders such as mayors, county board members, and business owners will
also be informed of progress on this project. Any changes that affect their jurisdictions
will be communicated to them, well in advance of the date of change. Pace seeks
to give them the opportunity to comment on our proposed list of bus stops, and
we welcome stakeholder input. We look forward to resolving any concerns before
we make an announcement to the riders.
Pace also recognizes that passengers want bus stop shelters to be installed
at as many locations as possible. Given budget constraints, installing a shelter
at every single bus stop is not feasible, but we do want to improve passenger
amenities at high-activity locations.
Check out our progress!
There are 220 routes in the Pace system. Pace is converting them, one-by-one,
on the basis of geographic balance throughout our six-county region.
This page contains the
list of routes that have already been converted, including the lists of stops
along each route.
As the mercury in this thermometer rises, Pace gets closer to our goal of
converting each and every bus route.
