Pace integrates On Demand Service into Transit App
Pace has incorporated On Demand Services into the Transit app, which offers trip planning and real-time travel information for transit riders in Northeastern Illinois. Future plans for the app include the integration of regional ADA Paratransit services.
Pace partnered with Transit to launch Mobility as a Service (MaaS) pilot program in November 2022. The mobile app initially provided trip planning information for Pace, CTA, and Metra’s fixed-route services, as well as a free upgrade to Transit’s Royale subscription for all Pace passengers.
Subsequent updates to the app have incorporated Pace Connect and Pace VanGo services. e VanGo is Pace’s reservation-based, roundtrip vanpool service that connects riders between stations and workplaces within a five-mile radius. The Pace Connect option appears in the Transit app’s trip plan results when relevant to a user’s intended destination.
