Know your route. Before you take your trip, know your bus route number and be sure to know where and when you are getting off. Be sure to know your surroundings so you know when your stop is coming up. Bringing a bus timetable and map may help.

Have payment ready. To pay for your trip, be sure to have your Ventra Card loaded or have exact change.

Use the accessibility features. Work with the driver to let him/her know what you need. Use the ramps, safety belts, disability seating and more to make the most out of your trip.

Communicate. Let a supporter know that you are taking the bus. Also, talk to the driver if you need help.

Stay safe. When exiting the bus, do not cross in front of it.

With these tips, you are sure to have a great experience on the Pace Suburban Bus fixed route. For more information, please visit: http://pacebus.com/sub/bus_system/

I read this blog and it said you need to know what bus number when you tack the bus and you need to know where you need to get off at and using the map to help us out.

This route helps me and know where to pick and drop off. I always rode the small pace bus on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to go to library and fitness center. I always prepare to pay when I get in the bus.
