The University of Illinois Spring Break is coming up! MTD will reduce service beginning Saturday, March 18 through the following Saturday, March 25. We’ll return to full and regular service on Sunday, March 26. The reductions are the same as those for Winter Break and are focused on campus:
The 12 Teal and 13 Silver operate 20-minute frequency during the weekday daytime. Trips on those schedules with the “U” footnote will not operate.
The 130 Silver Limited will operate during the weekday evenings and throughout the weekend. It’s important to review the map of the 130 Silver Limited because it is abbreviated from the regular Silver.
The 22/220 Illini Limited operates 30-minute frequency and limited routing during all day types. Regular Teal, Silver, and Illini routing and frequency will resume Sunday, March 26.
There will be no late night service (after midnight) on the 50 Green, 100 Yellow, 120 Teal, 130 Silver, and 220 Illini.
335 SafeRides operates reduced service during UI Breaks. Reservations will be made until 12:00 am and are served by one van. Designated pick up locations are not served. Full SafeRides service will resume the evening of Sunday, March 26 at 7:00 pm.
MTD will not operate Sunday evening and late night service on March 19. There will also be no 335 SafeRides because when the University of Illinois is not in session, MTD does not operate any evening or late night service. This also affects the 50 Green, 100 Yellow, 120 Teal, 130 Silver, and 220 Illini. Service will end on that day in the 5 o’clock pm hour.
Finally, the 2 Red Express trips, designated with “L” and “U” footnotes, do not operate Monday through Friday.
