Pace South Division serves southern Cook County, the south side of Chicago, and the DuPage County suburbs. The 191,000 sq. ft. facility was constructed in 1988 and, in 2016, became a compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station. It is currently being converted into a CNG bus maintenance facility. Pace is proud to lead the transportation industry in use of CNG buses because natural gas burns far cleaner than diesel fuel reducing carbon dioxide by up to 30% and toxic emissions by up to 90%. Replacing just one older diesel bus with a natural gas bus is equivalent to taking 21 cars off the road! Additionally, natural gas costs significantly less than diesel, substantially reduces maintenance costs, and results in a longer vehicle lifespan.
