What are the differences between Pace’s Route 270 and the new Pulse Milwaukee Line?
Pulse does not replace Route 270 but it complements existing services by providing amenities at the most popular boarding locations between the Golf Mill Shopping Center in Niles and the Jefferson Park Transit Center in Chicago. The selected Pulse station locations are strategically located to serve current Pace bus riders along the corridor. The Milwaukee Line service ends at the Golf Mill Shopping Center, but other Pace routes continue to serve the area north of Golf Mill.
Pace anticipates that many current Route 270 riders will use the Milwaukee Line, so as part of the August 11, 2019 launch of the Milwaukee Line, frequency on Route 270 has been reduced.
