SUBURBAN TRANSIT ROUTES

ROUTES 448-460

HOMEWOOD/SOUTH SUBURBS

Originally a feeder network developed by village of Homewood, and known as Homewood Bus Service. Originally three routes introduced in 1974, Homewood was one of the first suburbs to introduce rush hour feeder bus service to and from the commuter rail stations. And midday shopper service was also introduced.

The Homewood Bus Service was operated by Kickert School Bus Lines until 4/24/78, when South Suburban Safeway Lines assumed operation. And the midday shopper service was discontinued. Unless noted, all of these remaining routes were finally operated by South Suburban Safeway Lines, which the RTA acquired in 1983, and was managed by ATE Management until 1985, when it became the Pace South Division. All of these routes were eventually discontinued.
