Did You Know?

While the Chicago region’s population grew by 18 percent since 1980, the traffic increased by 66 percent in the same period.

Do you know about Pace WebWatch?

As most of us know, CTA has a very popular Bus Tracker service that provides real-time arrival information for CTA buses. But did you know that Pace had a similar service even before Bus Tracker existed? 

src= WebWatch (and yes, I think the name needs work) is a web-based service that provides real-time departure information for Pace fixed-route buses. It also provides a map system that displays the exact location of buses.

A text-only version is available, too, making it easier to load on a smartphone. Email notifications are available (text messaging would be better). 

So, in short, you can get real-time bus information anywhere in more than 210 communities throughout northeast Illinois. Enjoy your ride!
