Every day, people take the train or bus to get to work, go out to eat, run errands, but how about falling in love?

We have a love story that features one of our Transit Agencies! Maggie Daly Skogsbakken and her husband Kris Skogsbakken, who both work for Pace, first met on a Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit bus. Here’s a picture of them on their “first” date (not counting the meeting on the bus, which can be a great place for a date in our unbiased opinion).


And here’s a picture of them on their wedding day!


Thanks for sharing your great story with us Maggie and Kris!
