Your safety is Pace's top priority. For that reason, we are committed to giving you the information you need to be comfortable using our system.
The Covid-19 pandemic has reduced public transit ridership, and riders will not encounter crowded buses on the vast majority of trips throughout our system. However, some segments of a few routes still see elevated ridership at certain times of day.
Riders and operators are legally required to wear masks and seats are blocked off for social distancing. (See an overview of all the steps Pace is taking to keep buses clean and safe here.) If you are interested in seeing passenger load data for specific trips, you can do so using the document above.
If your route does not appear in the document, that means no trips on the route carry maximum average loads of more than 15 people.
If your route does appear in the document, note the trip time, as only a few trips will carry loads of more than 15 people, and those trips may only carry higher loads on certain segments of the route.
This document shows data from the previous week; past passenger loads may not be indicative of future passenger loads.
These numbers represent peak loads along the route, and do not represent conditions at every point on the route. Loads on your segment of a route may vary based on demand.
Pace is working on providing a more interactive interface for viewing this data.
You can view additional ridership and funding data from our regional transit system through RTAMS.
