PACE BUS ASSIGNMENTS

1997

Mostly complete information was obtained in 1997 from various sources. Missing was the Fox Valley Division (Aurora), but observations suggested that buses in the low 2000's were assigned to that division.

Not included are paratransit vehicles, along with school buses and motor coaches supplied by some contract companies. At the time, school buses were used on most rush hour feeder routes serving Naperville and Wheaton.
