The Redbird Express provides transportation around Illinois State University campus, Monday through Sunday, from 7:00 am to 3:00 am. during fall and spring semester on all regularly scheduled class days.
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 service is free to all faculty, staff, students, and visitors of Illinois State University when they show their valid University ID card.
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 the Connect Transit Special Bus Information line at (309) 828-7511 (voice or TTD) between 6:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.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.
