SOUTH SUBURBAN TRANSIT FACILITIES

BUS GARAGES

Present and past.


The South Suburban Safeway Lines main garage was at 209 E. 154th St., Harvey. Pace operated out of that garage until 1988, when the new South Division garage opened in nearby Markham, at 2101 W. 163rd Pl. The former garage location is now occupied by the Pace Harvey Transit Center.

For many years, South Suburban Safeway Lines was the only suburban bus company with more than one garage, for many years also operating out of a garage acquired in the 1930's with the Chicago Heights Transportation Co. That garage was located on the west side of Vincennes Ave., south of 16th St. That location is now occupied by the Pace Chicago Heights Transit Center.

Also during the 1960's, South Suburban Safeway Lines operated out of a garage on Indiana Ave. south of US Hwy. 6, in South Holland.
