The CTA and Pace have confirmed plans to hold a public hearing at 430 p.m. Tuesday, April 24, at the Levy Center on proposed bus route changes in Evanston.
As previously reported by Evanston Now, the changes would involve eliminating the CTA Route 205 and reconfiguring service on Pace Routes 208 and 213.
After the change Route 208 would run on Golf Road, Emerson Street and Dodge Avenue between Crawford Avenue and Church Street, eliminating service on Crawford Avenue between Golf Road and Church Street and on Church Street between Crawford Avenue and Dodge Avenue.
The change would extend Route 213 service to the Howard CTA Station via Chicago Avenue, improve service frequency between downtown Winnetka and the Howard CTA Station and operate school-day only service between Howard CTA Station and Evanston Township High School.
The CTA Route 205 bus to be eliminated now runs through Evanston from the Skokie Court House to the Howard Red Line using Golf Road in Skokie and Church Street and Chicago Avenue in Evanston.
Comments on the proposed changes can also be submitted online.
At a meeting March 28, members of Evanston’s Transportation and Parking Committee urged representatives of the transit agencies to not reduce the service now provided for students going to and from ETHS.
If approved, the route changed could go into effect this summer.
