Summer Service Reductions Begin Saturday, May 11

Summer is on the horizon! MTD will begin reduced summer service at 5:09 am on Saturday, May 11. Summer Service Reductions will run through Thursday, August 22. The reductions are primarily focused on campus and Late Night service, and mark the suspension of the 335 SafeRides service for the summer.

When the University of Illinois is not in session, MTD does not operate any Sunday Evening or Late Night service (after midnight). Regular Late Night service operates through Friday, May 10, and ends for the summer at 6:30 am on Saturday, May 11. This affects the 50 Green, 100 Yellow, 120 Teal, the 130 Silver Limited, and 22/220 Illini. Sunday service ends at 5:00 p.m.

The 12 Teal and 13 Silver operate at 20-minute frequencies during Weekday Daytime, beginning Monday, May 13, and will operate throughout the summer. Trips on those schedules with the “U” footnote will not operate.

The 130 Silver Limited will operate abbreviated routing during Weekday Evenings and throughout the Weekends at 20-minute frequencies beginning Monday, May 13, and will operate throughout the summer. It’s important to review the maps for the 130 Silver Limited because the route is abbreviated from the regular Silver route.

The 22/220 Illini Limited service will operate 30-minute frequencies and abbreviated routing during all day types. It’s important to review the maps for the 22/220 Illini Limited because the route is abbreviated from the regular Illini route.
