More Paces buses will soon be riding on the shoulder of the Stevenson Expressway.

The number of inbound and outbound trips will increase to 32 a day, starting in May.

Pace says the trips will take place on two routes between the far southwest suburbs, the Near West Side and downtown Chicago.

Buses are allowed to use the shoulder when traffic is traveling less than 35 miles per hour.

When traffic is flowing, the buses use the regular lanes of the Stevenson.
