Information about Pace’s Response to COVID-19


As we respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Pace recognizes our responsibility to operate safely, serve a critical public need, and communicate transparently.


Yesterday our Governor has announced a “Stay at Home” order to limit the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and protect Illinoisans. This means residents are to stay in their homes from March 21 until April 7. Residents can still go to grocery stores, pharmacies, and gas stations or take walks outside. Local roads, including highways and tollways, will remain open to traffic. Pace is considered an essential service and will continue to provide the vital services our passengers rely on.


Please help us by giving other riders space (social distance) and staying informed. Visit and subscribe to receive email and text alerts in case any changes take effect. 


What we’re doing:


  • Disinfecting our fleet daily
  • Communicating with riders at
  • Closing our indoor spaces to limit the virus’s spread
  • Coordinating with other agencies


How you can help:


  • Wash your hands, cover your cough, don’t touch your face, and stay home if you are sick!
  • Give other riders space (‘social distance’)
  • Reconsider unnecessary travel
  • Check before you ride: Is your destination open? Is our service running regularly on your route?
