During the pandemic, Pace was able to limit the number of people on each ADA Paratransit vehicle due to low ridership. Recently, ADA Paratransit ridership has been growing. Therefore, riders may find themselves riding with another passenger. Please be assured we still have rider safety utmost in mind. All paratransit vehicles in service are large enough to allow riders to sit six feet away from each other, and all riders and drivers are required to wear a face covering or mask inside the vehicle. Riders who are uncomfortable with the possibility of riding with another paratransit passenger should consider utilizing Pace’s Taxi Access Program (TAP) for trips originating in Chicago.
When riding, regardless of your vaccination status, please continue to wear a mask, limit interaction with the driver, and travel with a PCA if you need assistance while traveling. Since the start of the pandemic, Pace has worked diligently to keep all our riders safe and that commitment hasn’t changed.
