This project created a transit improvement study for the Village of South Elgin by identifying transit needs and opportunities within the Village in response to recent population growth and development. The project identified potential improvements to the existing Pace Route #801 as well as recommendations for potential community-based transit service. Tasks included an analysis of current travel patterns, a mobility needs assessment, development of service recommendations and implementation strategies.
|Project Type(s):||Transit Improvement Plan|
|Grantee:||Village of South Elgin|
|Current Activities:||The project was completed in November 2011. The plan was approved by the Village of South Elgin Village Board on November 21, 2011.|
As of December 12, 2011, Pace Route #801 has been re-routed to provide improved service to areas of high population and employment density along Randall Road. For more information and an updated list of stops, please visit http://www.pacebus.com/sub/schedules/route_notice_detail.asp?Notice_ID=2960. In July 2012, the Village Board added the South Elgin Transit Improvement Plan to the Village 2030 Comprehensive Plan. Additionally, as a result of the Pace Route #801 service realignment, ridership within the Village has increased five-fold.
In late 2013 Kane County DOT received CMAQ approval for the Randall Road Transit Infrastructure Improvements project. This project funds Phase 2 Engineering and Construction for bus shelters, waiting pads, crosswalk markings, pedestrian signals, ADA ramps and sidewalks along Pace Route 801, as recommended in the South Elgin Transit Improvement Plan and Kane County 2040 Long Range Transit Plan CP projects.

The Village created a Bike and Pedestrian Mobility Plan through the CMAP Local Technical Assistance program, which will enhance the connectivity to Route 801.
