RTA logo Hoffman Estates Flexible Transit Service Operations

Study Description

This project examined the feasibility of alternative small scale transit options for the Village to improve overall mobility and access. Links to employment, medical, service, retail and other transit services were investigated. Recommendations took into account the potential Pace transit options along I-90. Additionally, a market analysis to determine the potential market was performed.

Program:Community Planning
Program Year:2011
Project Type(s):Transit Improvement Plan
Grantee:Village of Hoffman Estates
Current Activities:The Village convened their transit task force in December 2014 to pursue transit service implementation activities in conjunction with the Pace/ Illinois Tollway I-90 Transit Market Expansion project. In February 2014, the State of Illinois announced a $68 Million funding plan for a full interchange at Barrington Road and the I-90 Jane Addams Memorial Tollway. This will allow Pace to offer express bus service to and from Hoffman Estates as the interchange project includes the creation of a Barrington Road Transit Center. Pace express services (Routes 607 and 605) will use the Tollway shoulder to provide congestion free bus travel. Pace is building a new Park-n-Ride / Kiss-n-Ride to support the new express bus stops on I-90 just east of Barrington Road. To link the transit stops with the parking and drop-off areas, pedestrian access under the ramps on the east side of the interchange were completed with the interchange work. The project also includes a new pedestrian bridge over I-90 to link the express bus stops on the north and south sides of I-90.The Barrington Road Transit Center is expected to open in late 2017 to match the roll-out of expanded express bus service on I-90.

The resulting increase in express bus service to the area will provide the ridership increase that is needed to implement Pace Call-n-Ride local service. In spring 2015, Pace, in conjunction with another RTA Community Planning project, began the planning process for a Barrington Road / I-90 area Call-n-Ride service.
