    Dear colleagues:

    Reservations are again being accepted for UI Ride, the convenient University of Illinois System shuttle service that will resume operation on August 17. 

    This service connects the Urbana-Champaign and Chicago universities and the Discovery Partners Institute. For fall 2021, UI Ride will make two daily round trips, three days a week (Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays). The convenient and comfortable 18-seat buses offer onboard Wi-Fi and work stations, allowing those traveling between campuses time to work rather than focusing on the drive.

    UI Ride also encourages and facilitates the growing collaborative efforts between our universities, and I hope you will take advantage of the service for your next trip.

    I hope resumption of this transportation service makes your important work less stressful and more productive. I look forward to your feedback and am grateful for everything you do for the U of I System. For more information and FAQs, visit uillinois.edu/uiride

  5. Trans013 UI Ride Survey - Submitted

    The Transportation SWATeam made the following recommendation on 4/3/2020: 

    When UI Ride resumes, F&S will hand out a survey that has already been developed by SWAT team member Julie Cidell regarding riders' motivations for taking UI Ride. Surveys are electronic and will not need to be physically collected; members of the SWAT team will carry out the analysis of the results.  

    Attached is the SWATeam recommendation Trans013 UI Ride Survey with comments from Transportation SWATeam members.
