Multimodal Coridore Enhancement Project

Thanks in part to a $15.7 million Federal TIGER grant, the Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District, City of Champaign, City of Urbana and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are partnering to improve mobility in our communities' core. This project will have a transformative impact unlike any previous transportation project in the communities' history.

We created this page for our passengers. Here you'll find detailed reroute information as well as relocated designated stops and iStops. MTD knows the MCORE Project, and the resulting reroutes, will impact your bus trips. Thanks for your patience and please, let us know if you need additional assistance. Three honks to the smoother rides ahead.

MCORE Reroutes as of September 13

On September 13, 2017, MCORE Project 1 will close the south half of Green from Goodwin to Lincoln until further notice. Major MTD reroutes are in effect, so please plan accordingly. Updates are posted regularly on MTD's Facebook & Twitter feeds, or call us at 217.384.8188 for assistance. 

Please note: Eastbound Green Street traffic will use a marked detour route via Springfield Avenue. Westbound Green Street traffic will use the north half of the street. Northbound and southbound traffic will be maintained at all times at the Mathews Avenue, Goodwin Avenue, and Lincoln Avenue intersections with Green Street. If at all possible, through traffic is encouraged to use University Avenue or Florida Avenue instead of using Green Street during this phase of construction. Green Street between Goodwin and Mathews remains closed.
