Overview

Mobile Workshop -- Attendees will ride a Pace Suburban Bus along the newly opened "bus on shoulder" route.  Learn about how it was planned and implemented.

Since 2011, through a joint partnership with the Illinois State Police, Illinois Department of Transportation, Pace Suburban Bus and RTA, Pace has operated premium bus-on-shoulders express service on certain sections of I-55 (Stevenson Expressway) between downtown Chicago and various southwest suburban communities. When traffic speeds are slow, Pace express buses may use the inside shoulder of I-55 designed for shoulder riding. Since its introduction, the bus-on-shoulders has seen a significant increase in ridership warranting further expansion in late August 2014.

 

Participants will ride an in-service Pace express bus from Downtown Naperville to Burr Ridge, IL, and back again. During the bus ride, Pace representatives will be talking about the program and the project.
