The commute from the southwest suburbs is now a little quicker for some bus riders.

Starting Monday, more buses are now traveling on the shoulder of the Stevenson Expressway to bypass congested areas.

The expansion affects Pace routes 755 and 855, operating between Chicago and the southwest suburbs, including Plainfield, Bolingbrook, Lemont, Lockport and Joliet Union Station.

New midday service is being added, as well as a later evening trip.
