SafeRides Service Begins at 5:00P Starting Monday, November 1
MTD wants passengers to be aware that we are maintaining SafeRides service as scheduled, and that November 1 through November 20, SafeRides will operate from 5:00P until 6:30A, with final reservations taken until 6:00A.
November 21 through the end of the University of Illinois’ Winter Break, January 23, SafeRides will operate from 5:00P until 12:30A, with final reservations taken until 12:00A. SafeRides will not operate on Sundays between Sunday, November 22, and Sunday, January 17, 2021.
MTD is also temporarily extending its SafeRides service boundary after 1:00 AM to include bus stops along North Lincoln Avenue. This Lincoln Ave. corridor includes the ONE South/North development, Capstone Quarters, The Atrium, and The Retreat. It is important to note that SafeRides will not provide door-to-door service within these complexes, but rather a safe ride to a complex’s bus stop proper. SafeRides service to this Lincoln Ave. corridor will be suspended for the winter on November 21.
Passengers can request a ride by downloading the MTD Connect app for free in the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store, and requesting a SafeRide through the app, or by phone by calling 217.384.8188 after 5:00PM.
