Sen FaraciCHAMPAIGN – With the support of State Senator Paul Faraci, the Illinois Department of Transportation announced the Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District will receive $7.15 million to improve transportation through bus upgrades.

“According to the U.S. Census, Champaign County is one of the few Illinois counties actually growing in size,” said Faraci (D-Champaign). “I am glad to see this state funding allocated to our area, and I will continue to push the state to give Champaign County its fair share.” 

The third round of Rebuild Illinois grants provides $113.8 million for Downstate transit providers as part of the historic Rebuild Illinois capital program. Awards are supporting projects that include the purchase of new vehicles as well as the construction of stations and maintenance facilities that improve service.

The Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District will receive $7,150,000 to replace outdated or worn buses with new hybrid vehicles to increase accessibility and ensure transportation options are up-to-date.
