About this Article

We say Pace bus and you say - yawn? Get over it. The sububan bus agency is reinventing itself with express buses along I-90 and a joint fare card with the CTA that will allow for seamless travel between the two systems. 2013 is the year where "everything changes," CEO T.J. Ross says. "The key to all this is that it's doable," Ross said, pointing out that discussions on the STAR Line started 15 years ago.
