The title immediately throws me off, cause I have a harder time loading previous months ridership data than I did before. Attempting to view any ridership month for 2020 other than September results in a page that doesn't load. And I certainly have to do more scrolling

Wish this reduced Uber/Lyft fare was a thing when I was working, some nights fares were $35-$55 for a 25 minute drive. I hope more work is done in regards to commutes, many of my former co-workers at FedEx had ridiculous commutes. Lot of people from South Shore and the gardens, I knew one person coming from Hegewisch. Other folks who transfered from the 349, 352 and 359 (or otherwise came thru 95th/Dan Ryan), or the 8A. Not counting walking time, my commute should've only been about 70 mins, but that saturday scheduling really messed that up.

I almost feel that these companies could provide subsidized vanpools which would be significantly cheaper than TNCs.

At FedEx, it would almost certainly be better, as frequently shifting start times made existing options useless, such as the end of twilight shuttle to 79th/Cicero leaving early, or even worse, arriving 379 F trips being completely empty because they arrived after start of shift. There were only 2 instances I caught a 379 F trip last summer, that was infuriating.

After almost 2 years, the RTA System Map has finally been updated to present time. Link is below if you want to check it out.

I see they have the CTA route changes, and also have the temporaily suspended services marked, but what other major route changes has Pace had in the last 2 years?

Edit: other than the 330 change, which is the only one I can think of
