Pace, the suburban bus service, plans to end its temporary suspension of fare collection and return to front door boarding only on Monday.
Riders will be required to pay fares on all Pace bus routes, on-demand services, dial-a-rides, and ADA paratransit services.
All service suspensions remain in effect, says Pace spokesperson Maggie Daly Skogsbakken. She says Pace will monitor demand and be prepared to reintroduce services as resources allow and people return to work and regular activities.
Skogsbakken says passengers are asked to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by wearing a facemask on buses, washing hands, covering coughs and staying home if they’re sick as well as using a Ventra card to pay fairs quickly and limit crowding at the front of the bus.
