Designated stops for bus routes

Local News

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — A major change to MTD’s bus routes took effect Sunday.

MTD started its system of designated stops.

From now on, people will only be able to get on or off a bus at a bus stop sign.

The city has been working on this plan for years, but some people were surprised when they couldn’t get on at their usual place.

“Now he’s telling us we have to walk down to the opening of town to catch the bus, and that’s maybe three or four blocks down, and my kids catch the bus early. Sometimes it can be a little dark out and I feel like that’s taking them out of their way,” says bus passenger, Dishimi Brown.

MTD’s new service year also started Sunday.

If anyone has questions or concerns MTD says to contact them.
