PACE Dial-A-Ride Bus Service

Dial A RidePace was formed in 1983 as part of the reorganization of the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA), and began service in 1984. Pace is the suburban bus division of the RTA. Pace has many programs available (see links at bottom of this page under ADDITIONAL PACE INFORMATION & SERVICES).

Bloomingdale Township sponsors curb-to-curb service available for our residents through Pace's Dial-A-Ride program. An initial registration is required to get recorded into their system as a resident by calling (800) 713-7445. Since Pace has many services through this phone number, please ask to speak with a Registration Supervisor and specifically request registration for the Bloomingdale Township Dial-A-Ride program.
