Book a late night or after dark SafeRides trip on the University of Illinois campus. Or weekday daytime, connect to the bus from Southwest Champaign with West Connect!

The purpose of SafeRides Connect is to provide safe transportation to individuals who are generally traveling alone and when no other means of safe transportation are available within the designated SafeRides Connect boundaries. There is a maximum limit of three persons per pick-up location.
SafeRides Connect does not duplicate fixed-route service already provided by MTD. SafeRides Connect does not provide emergency transportation services to medical facilities. SafeRides Connect does not provide service to and from bars.

West Connect is a van service that operates within a designated service boundary (shown) not served by fixed routes. West Connect provides curb-to-curb service that connects outlying areas to fixed route service. If your trip is within the West Connect boundaries or at the Round Barn Road or Stephens Family YMCA transfer locations, just enter the trip information into the app and get the details of your trip.

For any questions about SafeRides, the West Connect, or MTD’s fixed-route service, please call 217.384.8188 or visit

Not useful when you need it

You can call a safe ride when it’s late and it sits at one spot not picking you up when you actually need a safe ride when buses are not available. However, when buses are available it comes available. The drivers are also rude and give attitude when it comes to giving safe rides.
