Series of meeting announced to discuss Pace North Shore service changes

 A couple years ago Pace Suburban Bus and the CTA teamed up to study bus service on the Chicago region’s North Shore, the setting of many John Hughes teen comedies. The objectives of the North Shore Transit Service Coordination Plan and Market Analysis, completed in 2017, was to improve bus service and coordination in the area by studying existing travel demands and reviewing new developments in the region to improve, or modify service. Also, the planners hoped to increase the market for public transit through the better service and by making new connections.

Pace recently announced six public hearings to collect public input on Phase II of proposed service changes resulting from plan. the Phase II study area is basically bounded by Northbrook to the north, Evanston/Rogers Park to the east, the Jefferson Park and Harlem CTA Blue Line stations to the south, and Des Plaines to the west.

The proposed changes include adjustments to five routes (215, 225, 226, 422 and 423), the addition of one new route (424), and the cancelation of two routes (210 and 421). More info is available on the North Shore Coordination Plan page in the Projects & Studies section at
