Encourage Train Travel for Business Trips

Amtrak is a great way to travel long distances.  Business travel can be accomplished via train, rather than by plane or personal vehicle.  This allows a much lower emissions level per trip, and it is a relaxing option for travel.  Business trips by train are also opportunities to relax or work during the trip, with plenty of space and few distractions.

Encourage Use of Intercity Buses

Illinois Terminal (45 E. University Ave., Champaign) provides a central transfer point for the local MTD bus service, intercity buses, and Amtrak train service.

Greyhound, Burlington Trailways, Lex Express, Illini Express, and Megabus provide bus service to other cities from the Terminal.

Bicycle Registration

Bicycle registration is primarily a method to assist with returning stolen or lost bikes when they are recovered. In Summer 2020, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Facilities & Services (F&S) department purchased a National Bicycle Registration system through Project 529 for campus and community.
