Summer service reductions for the Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District (MTD) will go into effect this Saturday, May 12. Please plan ahead. Specific route changes for the summer are as follows:
2 Red Express: There will be no 2 Red Express trips over the summer. These trips are marked in the schedule by “L” and “U” footnotes.
12 Teal: Weekday daytime trips marked with a “U” footnote will not operate. This brings the daytime frequency of the Teal down from 10 minutes to every 20.
13 Silver: Weekday daytime trips marked with a “U” footnote will not operate. This also reduces Silver frequencies to every 20 minutes.
130 Silver Limited: The Limited operates with 20 minute frequencies and an abbreviated route during weekday evenings as well as on Saturday and Sunday.
22/220 Illini Limited: The Limited, with a unique schedule and routing, operates during all daytypes. The Limited operates every 30 minutes on this abbreviated route.
50 Green, 100 Yellow, 120 Teal, 130 Silver, and 220 Illini Late Night: All late night trips (after midnight) for these five routes do not operate during the summer.
335 SafeRides: There will be no SafeRides service.
Year round, Sunday evening and late night service is grouped into one schedule. The only Sunday evening and late night service that is ever available is on the 50 Green, 100 Yellow, 120 Teal, 130 Silver, and 220 Illini. But during UI Breaks, including summer, there is no Sunday evening and late night service.
Additionally, MTD provides school transportation for Champaign Unit 4 and Urbana School District 116 middle and high school students. The school trips, which are open to the public, are marked in our Maps & Schedules Book with footnotes. These trips are not available when the local schools are out for the summer.
All the routes that serve Parkland College are unaffected by the summer service reductions.
Last, there will be no MTD service on Memorial Day, Monday, May 28 as well as Independence Day, July 4. Thank you for making alternate travel accommodations as our employees enjoy these national holidays. Service will not be affected on the days before or after.
