Study Description

This study created a Local Transit Improvement Plan for the Village. This was accomplished by reviewing the performance of existing transit services, determining customer satisfaction with the existing services, and developing coordination among existing services.

 
Status
Status:Completed
Program:Community Planning
Program Year:2009
Project Type(s):Transit Improvement Plan
Grantee:Village of Schaumburg
Current Activities:The plan was accepted by the Village of Schaumburg Village Board on December 13, 2011. Since that time, the Village has taken several actions to implement the plan and improve transit service. Schaumburg worked with Pace to reroute the Woodfield Trolley (Route 905) to better serve riders and revised the funding formula to create savings that allowed an increase in service. Additionally, Pace Route 602, a Metra feeder service, was reroute to more densely populated areas in the hope of increasing ridership. This change went into effect in September of 2016. The Village has also made changes to its Dial-A-Ride Transportation that include additional service and greater availability of subscription service.

The Village also worked with Pace and members of the local business community as part of Pace's I-90 Market Expansion Program to consider improvements to local transit service. This resulted in several new routes (604, 607, 608, 611) and a service expansion on one existing route (600) that provide connections to Schaumburg.
