NiteRide provides transportation from 7:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m., seven days a week during fall and spring semesters, around campus and to other locations like The Shoppes at College Hills, Wal-Mart, and Parkway Plaza.
You must be at a designated Connect Transit bus-stop in order to board a bus. Drivers will not stop along the route to pick up passengers who are not at designated bus-stops.
This program is offered to students, faculty and staff at no cost, providing they have a valid ID. All other rides will be charged a fare. Please note that drivers do not make change or handle fares.
Because Illinois State University strives to accommodate all riders, the NiteRide bus service operates a special curb-to-curb service. The service area of the Special Service Bus is a 3/4 mile radius of the NiteRide fixed route service area.
Eligibility for this bus service is based on criteria which have been adopted by Connect Transit and the Office of Parking and Transportation. Special bus service is available during the same operating hours and on the same days as the NiteRide fixed route services. The special service bus is available by (next day) reservation only. For information about reservations, call NiteRide at (309) 438-7433 (voice) or (309) 438-8080 (TTD) between 7:00 p.m. and 1:00 a.m.
For detailed information regarding eligibility criteria and reservations, please call Connect Transit at (309) 828-7511 (voice or TDD) between 6:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.
