Three area Pace Bus routes changed Monday, including the dropping of some sections with low ridership.
Because of simplification, some routes also can accommodate additional trips, according to a news release.
• Route 806 Crystal Lake to Fox Lake now provides direct service to the Johnsburg Walmart and eliminates sections on Chapel Hill Road between Wilmot Road and Route 120, and on Route 120 between Chapel Hill Road and Route 31.
• Instead of circling Wonder Lake, Route 807 Woodstock to McHenry continues on Route 120 to the south of Wonder Lake.
• Route 808’s alternative route, connecting Crystal Lake and Harvard, is discontinued, and instead of taking Marengo Road between Ayers Street and Route 173, buses take Ayers Street to Route 173.
