Maybe being taken for a ride isn’t such a bad thing after all.
With the Route 59 expansion project under way, the city of Naperville and Pace are offering a new free ride program this summer for those who use the Route 59 Metra station and are looking for options to shorten their commute and help reduce some of the congestion associated with the construction project.
As part of the program, Pace bus routes from three of the city’s park-and-ride lots to the Route 59 Metra station will be free every weekday for Pace Routes 672, 673 and 675. Parking at the park-and-ride lots is free, and Pace service to the Route 59 Metra station runs express without stops.
The three park-and-ride lots include:
95th Street: located at 91st Street and Wolfs Crossing Road (Pace Route 672)
Community Christian Church: located on Emerson Lane near Ogden Avenue and Rickert Drive (Pace Route 673)
Wheatland Salem Church: located at 95th Street and Book Road (Pace Route 675)
Those who choose to utilize the park-and-ride lots as part of the free ride promotion can have their Route 59 parking permit suspended. The permit may be reinstated at anytime at no additional cost to the permit holder.
The free ride program began Tuesday and will run until Aug. 29.Tags: Metra, roadwork
