CHICAGO – State Rep. Lindsey LaPointe, D-Chicago, applauded the addition of new high-speed transit options at the ribbon-cutting for Pace’s Pulse service.
“Public buses offer an opportunity for residents to access community resources such as school, work, shopping and medical care while also cutting down on Chicago traffic, which is something we face on a near hourly basis,” said LaPointe. “Commuters need to have quick, easy and reliable transportation to parts of our city, and Pulse will help deliver on that.”
LaPointe joined local leaders and community members to welcome Chicago’s newest transportation system, Pulse, which was designed to provide faster and more frequent bus service throughout suburban Chicagoland. Pulse includes several amenities like limited-stop express service, Wi-Fi access, stations with weather protections and real-time bus arrival signage.

LaPointe represents the 19th District, which covers portions of Chicago’s Big Oaks, Dunning, Gladstone Park, Jefferson Park, Portage Park, Union Ridge and West Portage Park neighborhoods, and River Grove, Elmwood Park, Norridge and Harwood Heights.
