Transit Pub Crawl: Pace Pulse Edition

Saturday, October 19, 2019

YPT Chicago’s semi-annual Transit Pub Crawl is BACK and this time we’ll be touring Chicagoland’s newest rapid transit project, Pace’s Pulse Milwaukee Line! Along the way we’ll be checking out all that the vibrant and culturally diverse Milwaukee Avenue corridor has to offer.

As an added bonus, several YPT members that helped make the Milwaukee Line a reality will be taking part in the crawl, so you can enjoy an unofficial* tour of the project and learn what it takes to make bus rapid transit work in Chicago’s outlying neighborhoods and suburbs.

We’ll visit the following bars and restaurants on our tour, each a short walk from a Pulse station:

12:30-1:45 — Gale St. Inn (Jefferson Park Station)
2:15-3:30 — The Garage (Devon station)
4:00-5:15 — Izzy’s Arcade Bar (Harlem station)
5:45-7:00 — DMZ Korean Cafe (Golf Mill station)

About Pace Pulse Milwaukee Line
Operating from the Jefferson Park Transit Center on Chicago’s Northwest Side to the nearby Village of Niles, the Pulse Milwaukee Line opened for service in August 2019, providing fast, frequent, limited-stop service with enhanced station amenities as well as on-board features including WiFi, USB charging, and digital route signage. This is the first of dozens of Pulse corridors planned throughout the region.
