Wow, last minute public transit cancelations. I hope not many Danville people got stranded in Champaign, and found themselves standing out in the sleet, waiting for a shuttle that would never arrive. Gonna be a looonnng night.

Really, the roads were not impassable and there was no declared snow emergency. Just a normal winter snowstorm. To cancel long-haul public transit like that is pretty irresponsible.  Unless they have some way of contacting their riders-in-play (which they might--I don't know how tix are sold for that journey).

Makes me very hesitant to ever consider the Danville Transit Shuttle as a viable option for travel.
