The following massmail was sent to faculty and staff in Urbana-Champaign and Chicago.
Reservations are again being accepted for UI Ride, the convenient University of Illinois System shuttle service that will resume operation on August 17.
This service connects the Urbana-Champaign and Chicago universities and the Discovery Partners Institute. For fall 2021, UI Ride will make two daily round trips, three days a week (Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays). The convenient and comfortable 18-seat buses offer onboard Wi-Fi and work stations, allowing those traveling between campuses time to work rather than focusing on the drive.
UI Ride also encourages and facilitates the growing collaborative efforts between our universities, and I hope you will take advantage of the service for your next trip.
