Maps & Schedules

When you need to get to what matters, MTD is here to help. This is where you’ll find everything you need to plan and take your trips—an app to pay your fare, a list of current reroutes, system and school maps, and much more. Still have questions? Give us a call at 217.384.8188.


New to MTD's system? Or just learning a new route? You can find all the specific route information you’ll need here, including a list of local landmarks for each route.

Bus Stops

Each & every trip on MTD begins and ends at a designated bus stop, so it's important to know the different types of bus stops, how to find information at each stop, & what those SMS codes mean on every bus stop sign.

Trip Planner

Ready to roll? MTD's Trip Planner is easy to use and the most accurate way to plan your trip. Let's get started. This is the easiest thing you'll do all day.


Plan your school trip simply & easily! Enter your starting or home address & MTD's school trip planner will automatically show you the stops nearest you, identify your school's start time, & show you the best route to school.


Find any of MTD's system maps, a map of the entire District, or a full copy of the 2023-24 Maps & Schedules book here.


Install on your mobile device or take a look at third-party apps. Featured apps do everything from allowing passengers to pay an MTD fare from their mobile device to enabling Alexa to read aloud upcoming departure times.


When road construction, water main breaks, public events, & other situations cause traffic delays, MTD's Control Center works hard to respond. Check here for a constantly updated list of all current reroutes.

UIUC Learn To Ride

We know things are unpredictable right now and we are disappointed that we will not get to meet you face-to-face at registration this year to answer your questions about campus bus service. You can rest assured that we are in the process of creating online orientation resources to help you learn to ride.

Public Hearing

MTD schedules public meetings each spring to offer guidance for the 2022-2023 service year, which begins on August 14, 2022. This year we will have three live opportunities for the community to learn about these proposed changes and actively engage with our Staff to provide feedback.
