Mtd Logo 2020 Rebrand With Thrive

The Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District (MTD) provides safe, affordable transportation across Champaign, Urbana, and Savoy, Illinois through fixed-route buses as well as on-demand and ADA paratransit van service. We serve over 2000 bus stops on more than 20 routes, and in addition to serving students on campus at the University of Illinois, MTD is also a proud partner with local public schools to provide transportation for middle and high school students.

After more than 50 years of service, MTD continues our long-standing commitment to environmental sustainability with a low to zero emission fleet of hybrid and hydrogen fuel cell electric buses. And while much has changed since our humble beginnings, the important things have not; at MTD, we're still leading the way to greater mobility to help our community thrive.
