Pace announced customers will no longer be able to flag down buses as the agency converts all of its routes to a posted-stops operation in the future.
Pace notified the City of the change, which was made as part of a network evaluation to improve customer service, safety and on-time performance. The operational improvement is being made as part of the agency's long-term plans to modernize the system with transit signal priority implementation and to provide better information to the public about where bus routes operate.
Pace stated a detailed study was conducted to identify bus locations along Route 801, which runs through Geneva. Within a few weeks, Pace and its contractor will begin relocation or installing new bus stop signs at the following locations:
|Geneva Metra Station||Southwest|
|State and Third streets||Northeast|
|State and Sixth streets||Northeast|
|State Street and Anderson Boulevard||Northeast|
|State and Pine streets||Northeast|
|State Street and Williamsburg Avenue||Northeast|
