Preferred Transportation Between Campuses

In order to reduce costs and environmental impact, the preferred method of travel between the Chicago and Champaign and the Chicago and Springfield campuses is Amtrak or Greyhound. The state employee discount on Amtrak reduces the cost of one-way travel:

Between Chicago and Champaign: as low as $14 vs. $73 for a personal vehicle

Between Chicago and Springfield: as low as $21 vs $111 for a personal vehicle
