(BROOKFIELD) If you live in the city and you’re hoping to catch a glimpse of the Brookfield Zoo’s baby gorilla Nora this summer, you’re in luck.
Pace is launching new express routes between several CTA train stops and the zoo in west suburban Brookfield that will operate on weekends through the summer, according to a joint statement from Pace, the Chicago Zoological Society and the Forest Preserves of Cook County.
On Memorial Day, May 26, Pace will begin operating routes 770 and 771, which will travel between the zoo and the CTA’s Blue, Green and Pink lines.
The 770 bus will operate about once an hour on Saturdays and Sundays with stops at the Green Line Harlem station and the Blue Line Forest Park Transit Center. The 771 bus will operate Saturdays and Sundays about once an hour between the zoo and the Pink Line 54th/Cermak Station.
On Saturday, June 7, Route 772 will begin operating between the Red Line 95th/Dan Ryan station and the zoo. The bus will make three round trips each Saturday.
All three routes will run through Aug. 30, according to the statement. Adult fare is $1.75 and up to two children ages 7 and under ride free with each adult.
