Introducing Pulse

Pace’s new rapid transit network, Pulse, will provide enhanced express bus service to commuters using the latest technology and streamlined route design.

  • Limited-stop express service
  • Vehicles equipped with Wi-Fi and other technological advancements
  • Easy-to-find stations with weather protection
  • Real-time bus arrival signage

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

Pace held an open house on April 22, 2015 at the Niles Park District Oasis Water Park for the public to learn more about Pulse, Pace’s new arterial bus rapid transit network, and the Pulse Milwaukee Line.

The first Pulse service, the Pulse Milwaukee Line, will launch in 2018, running along Milwaukee Avenue between the Golf Mill Shopping Center and the Jefferson Park Transit Center, where passengers can connect with other Pace bus routes as well as CTA and Metra.

Pace discussed the Pulse Milwaukee Line project and provided a presentation, exhibits, and comment forms. Attendees were also able to meet with project team members.

If you missed the meeting, you can find meeting materials here.
