A brief description of the program(s), (s), including availability, participation levels, and specifics about discounts or subsidies offered (including pre-tax options):

For over twenty years, the UI has been collaborating with the Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District to provide universal access to the community transit system. All visitors on campus can board a bus for free from designated stops, and all campus employees and students can use the city wide system at no additional charge. This system includes campus specific routes with high frequency schedules, and off campus routes to all areas of town. The ridership is very high for the area, and the MTD has been working towards being more sustainable with the purchase of hybrid buses for the majority of their vehicle fleet.
