PACE Bus Offers Service to Brookfield Zoo!

Brookfield Zoo

Route 772 – Operates Saturday service with three round trips from the CTA Red Line 95th/Dan Ryan Station. One later evening return trip is provided on select Saturdays for the Zoo’s Summer Nights program. Service begins June 7. No Sunday or holiday service is provided on Route 772.

“I want to thank Pace for offering express service to the Brookfield Zoo. Now more Cook County residents can have access to all the treasures that Brookfield Zoo has to offer,” said Cook County Commissioner and Zoological Committee Chairman Jeff Tobolski.

“Pace’s Brookfield Zoo Express provides an affordable and stress free trip to the zoo where families and seniors will be able to spend quality time with one another rather than fighting traffic,” said Jo-Elle Mogerman, vice president of institutional planning and inclusion for the Chicago Zoological Society, which manages the zoo. “Additionally, as a conservation organization, we are thrilled to be partnering with Pace to be able to offer our guests an alternative to driving to the zoo by using public transportation.”
