Transit Fares Resume


As part of phase three, Pace & CTA will resume collecting fares starting on Monday, June 22nd. CTA buses will also return to front door boarding.


As part of their plans to keep riders safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, in a statement from Pace, the agency will:

  • Prioritize the safety of passengers and personnel

  • Deep clean and sanitize vehicles daily

  • Clean high touch surfaces throughout the day

  • Provide operators with PPE

  • Limit seating where possible to encourage physical distancing

  • Keep indoor spaces in stations closed

  • Limit onboard passengers and add extra vehicles to routes as able

  • Temporarily waive TAP fares

Pace also asks riders to do our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including to:

  • Wear a facemask on Pace buses (per Executive Order 2020-32)

  • Wash hands, cover coughs, don't touch the face, and stay home if sick

  • Give operators and other riders space; board and take your seat promptly

  • Reconsider unnecessary travel

  • Use your Ventra Card to pay fares and limit crowding at the front of the bus

  • Check if service is running regularly on your route

  • Ride with a personal care attendant if you need physical assistance

  • Please exit through the rear door whenever possible
