I live in the suburbs of Lansing, Illinois.  I have been taking the 355 Pace bus for 17 years. Last year in March 17th  of 2020 the 355  Pace bus was shut down due to low ridership at least this is  what Pace says.  The 355 Pace bus use to go downtown Chicago and that was taken away. Then Pace decided after a signed was sent to them with over 250 signatures that our bus wouldn't be eliminated all together it was put as limited to the Hegwish train station so that working people and others needing to take care of business downtown Chicago could get to where we needed to go! So now I am asking as many people as possible to sign this petition.  I called Pace customer service today 847-364-7223   and spoke to Natalie  who by the way was just doing her job she said sorry and I said I am too while pleading my case to find out that the  355 Pace bus will not return due to budget cuts. She said maybe in the future but right now 100 buses where cut.   I know for a fact the powers that be have been trying for years to get rid of the  355 bus route in our neighborhood!!! I and many others are left walking at least an  hour or more  to get home if we have to  take the 358 Pace bus  which is not in alternate bus route for many of us!   We are stuck waiting at the Hegwish train station for over an hour and 20mins for the 358 bus.  The 358 bus only goes down Torrence Ave it doesn't stop on the residential streets in Calumet City or Lansing.  How do you get home?  Not everyone has a car.  I see alot of my friends that use to ride the 355 bus  with me  get on the 358 Pace bus and walk at least an hour home. I just figured if the city is opening up on June 11th 2021 we need our bus back immediately!  Please help me and other passengers that have been riding this 355 Pace bus for 20 years or more. We have new residents  moving to Lansing and Calumet City that can't even get to the Hegwish train station to go work or take of business in downtown Chicago without trying to call an Uber or Lyft while having to pay outrageous surging charges and then pay for the train as well. What if you don't have money for an Uber or Lyft everyday to get to the train and back home. I am also going to contact my Mayor Patty Eidam of Lansing Illinois and the Mayor of Calumet City Thaddeus Jones. Please help get the word out we need the 355 Pace bus back asap!!! Pace says this was going to temporary however they are now going back on there word and saying maybe in the future the bus may  come back. But there are bus stops with garage bags over the signs and bus stations taken down in Calumet City already as if today.  Please help sign this petition to get the 355 Pace bus back.
