MTD plans limited service during break

Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District buses later this week will switch to more limited service while the University of Illinois is on winter break.

Regular service will continue on all routes through Friday, but then will operate with some reductions through Jan. 17 when UI students return to Champaign-Urbana.

Among the more significant service cutbacks is the elimination of all evening service (roughly after 6 p.m.) on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. Normal Saturday night service ends around 2 a.m. when UI students are present and around midnight when students are on break.

There also will be no service all day Christmas Day and New Year's Day.

Further, there will be no Air Bus service to the UI Willard Airport from Dec. 18 through Jan. 15, no SafeRides service on campus during the same period, and limited service on the Illini route that serves campus and areas of student housing.

For more information on service reductions, call the MTD at 384-8188 or consult the MTD website at
