Detour Stops

Recommended Posts

Recently. Pace implemented a detour on rOute 313 from St Charles/ Rt 83 to Roosevelt/Meyers due to a weight restriction on  a small bridge on St Charles just West of Rt 83.  Now the 313 runs south on Rt 83 and West on Roosevelt  (the reverse EB) to Meyers where it goes back on rOute

 

  Drivers had been making stops upon request along Roosevelt  at posted 301 stops until Wednesday.   I requested  a stop at Ardmore but the driver showed me a message on her  MDT instructing 313 drivers not to stop along Roosevelt. 

To me this is unfair.  Any passengers  that live along Ardmoore or Summit NORTH of Roosevelt but south of Washington  that could walk from Roosevelt  now can't take this bus through no fault  of their own.  For me, I can get off on Meyers but Ardmore  puts me closer to home.   Also the 301 does8 run West of Oak Brook Mall on weekends.

What is Pace policy regarding  stops along detour routes, especially  significant  detours  such as this one?

The Passenger Notice for this detour didn't say.

I guess it depends on what is posted. For instance the 352 detour was posted as picking up, and eventually became 348. But there wasn't parallel service already running on 138th.

Looking up the schedules, while the Passenger Notice says to expect delays, there is pressure here to maintain the coordinated and probably interlined schedule with 309 east of Melrose Park.

Possibly of interest here, I noticed the passenger notice for the 308 detour has the following notation, whereas other detour notices do not:

On the temporary segment of the route, posted bus stop signs will not be present. Riders can get on or off the bus at any safe intersection along that segment.
