Resolve to Ride Transit in 2017

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Business

The RTA has an idea for a New Year’s Resolution you can keep! It’s healthy, good for the economy and the environment and affordable. Ride the region’s transit system in 2017 and enjoy one of the benefits of living in our six county region.

  • Studies show transit riders get more daily exercise than those who use other modes
  • Every dollar invested in public transportation generates approximately $4 in economic returns
  • Public transportation use in the United States saves 4.2 billion gallons of gasoline annually
  • A two-person household in our region can save nearly $1,000 a month by switching a daily commute from driving to taking public transportation

If you aren’t a regular rider, the RTA has created new, updated sub-regional maps specifically for suburban customers that also provide useful information for riders with disabilities and older adult riders. The maps include:

  • Pace Dial-a-Ride and Paratransit information with boundaries, hours of operation, eligibility and contact phone numbers;
  • Pace fixed routes with times and days of operation;
  • Metra to Pace connections within each map region;
  • CTA, Metra, and Pace fare information; and
  • Information about Pace Express Service, including Bus on Shoulder service.
