Dear colleagues:

Traveling to Chicago or Urbana-Champaign? For your next trip, I recommend you try UI Ride, the University of Illinois System shuttle service. UI Ride is open to faculty, staff and students traveling for university business and is also available to faculty and staff for personal travel needs.  

You can now download the new UI Ride app to make your reservation. For more information, FAQs and a video about the serivice, visit

UI Ride is not only a convenient and comfortable way to travel between the Urbana-Champaign and Chicago universities and the Discovery Partners Institute with onboard Wi-Fi to support efficient use of work time, but the service also reduces the number of vehicles on the road for university-related business.

The service connects our universities with three daily round trips, Monday through Friday. Shuttle stops include:
•             UI Health (UIC West Campus, 1740 W. Taylor St., Chicago)
•             UIC Behavioral Science Building (UIC East Campus, 1007 W. Harrison St., Chicago)
•             Discovery Partners Institute (200 S. Wacker Dr., Chicago)
•             North Campus Parking Deck Lot B4 (1201 W. University Ave., Urbana)
•             Levis Faculty Center (919 W Illinois St., Urbana)

I look forward to your feedback and am grateful for everything you do for the U of I System.
