Pace offers a family of services to help reduce transportation costs and congestion in our six county region. In McHenry County, there is limited fixed route bus service and MCRide. Details about these programs can be found at PaceBus.com.
In parts of McHenry County, fixed routes or MCRide may not be available or convenient. Vanpool is an economical, convenient and green alternative to driving alone. A vanpool is formed by a group of five or more people with similar work schedules who live and work near each other. Pace supplies the vehicle and covers the cost of fuel, maintenance, insurance, tolls, roadside assistance, van washes, and an emergency ride home program for those participating.
Each member is billed monthly; fares are based on round-trip mileage and number of persons in the vehicle. One rider agrees to be the primary driver, keeps the vehicle, does not pay a monthly fare and receives an incentive of 300 personal miles/month. Backup drivers receive a $10/month discount.
Pace RideShare is a free, easy and convenient online matching service that connects commuters interested in forming a vanpool (5 or more people) or carpool (2-4 people). PaceRideshare.com confidentially matches commuters based on location, destination and work schedule, and will let you know if you match with an already active pool.

WATERING YOUR YARD
The Village of McCullom Lake has adopted a policy of even/odd watering days. This means that if your address ends in an even number, you may water on even numbered days of the week; odd numbered addresses water on the odd numbered days of the week. This is especially important during dry periods throughout the summer.
Please remember to keep your pets safe this summer. Do not let them run free throughout the neighborhood. Also, please keep barking to a minimum and pick up after them when walking.
TREES IN THE VILLAGE
Trees that hang over the road are the responsibility of the home owner. Trees need to be trimmed to a minimum of 18 feet from the ground all the way back beyond the curb. Complaints have been made by the fire department, garbage company and school buses. When the trees are wet, they hang down even lower. Trees that are not trimmed will be taken care of by the Village and the home owner will be charged accordingly. Thank you for your cooperation!
