About Pulse

Pace is bringing an exciting new service to northeastern Illinois. Pulse is a new rapid transit network, which will provide fast, frequent and reliable bus service using the latest technology and streamlined route design.

As part of Pace’s Vision 2020 plan to modernize public transportation, Pace plans a 24-line Pulse network to enhance mobility and suburb-to-suburb travel options.

Seven priority routes have been identified for development over the next 10 years, including Milwaukee Avenue, Dempster Street, Harlem Avenue, Cermak Road, Halsted Street, 95th Street, and Roosevelt Road.

The first two Pulse lines to be implemented are: Milwaukee Avenue and Dempster Street.
