MOPD issues travel alert for paratransit riders

ALERT FOR PARATRANSIT RIDERS:

The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard watch for Tuesday and Wednesday in the Chicago area and surrounding suburbs.

Due to a potentially record setting snowfall and forecasted heavy winds, Pace and the Mayor's Office for People with Disabilities encourage riders to only take trips that are absolutely necessary. Road conditions will be extremely hazardous and dangerous, and there will be no way to project travel times. Service will likely run extremely slow and pick–ups very late.

Please stay home and be safe. If you have a subscription please call your carrier to cancel.
