Dial-a-Ride programs have different rules on fares, geographic boundaries and passenger eligibility.
For more information about these services, check the Pace Dial-a-Ride Service Directory for the rules in your area and for the phone number to call for a reservation.

Committee’s (LCCTSC) Northwest Demonstration Project (NW Demo) began in
January of 2010 to provide curb-to-curb dial-a-ride transportation

LCCTSC, Lake County, and Pace Suburban Bus. This demonstration project
is funded, in part, with two grants from the Regional Transportation
Authority through the Federal Transit Administration, Section 5317 New

matching funds for the two federal grants are provided by Lake County
and Pace Suburban Bus.
