New strategic vision plan will guide Pace as it builds back better
ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL – Pace Suburban Bus is pleased to invite the public to provide feedback on a draft of their new strategic vision plan, Driving Innovation. This plan will guide Pace as it reimagines its services and builds a modern, equitable, and robust transportation system that will serve the people of Northeastern Illinois for decades to come. Originally set for a 2020 release, Driving Innovation was delayed and updated in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Despite this pandemic, Pace’s foundation is strong and its future is bright,” said Pace Executive Director Rocky Donahue. “Thanks to the strategy laid out in Driving Innovation and the infrastructure investments funded through the state’s capital program, Rebuild Illinois, Pace will significantly improve its ability to provide transit service and better serve the mobility needs of the communities we serve.”
The draft plan is posted on Pace’s website at PaceBus.com/Driving-Innovation and comments are welcome through August 20. A final plan will be adopted in the fall. Comments can be shared via email to Driving.Innovation@PaceBus.com, by phone to 847-364-7223, option 3, or by mail to Pace Driving Innovation at 550 W. Algonquin Road, Arlington Heights, IL 60005. Hard copies and translations are available upon request.
After its adoption, Driving Innovation will remain a “living document” that will be updated periodically based on rider and partner input and as new developments take shape in the region.
