This is an excellent facility for public transportation. Buses downstairs, Amtrak upstairs. Nice restrooms and waiting areas on both levels. If you are taking an Amtrak train, be sure and use the free parking--DO NOT PAY TO PARK OUT IN FRONT. The free parking is behind the terminal. Go under the underpass and immediately turn right. The staff here is... More

When we first got out and had to walk through the terminal to get to the elevators, we were all skeptical. But once we got up... More

Very organized place for buses and train. Buses are punctual, the waiting area is clean and safe. I would say that Urbana Champaign has a great transportation system MTD buses and else. All can be catched through illini union.

There is a nice waiting area on the 2nd floor where you can wait for the train. Plenty of seats on the 1st floor if you are waiting for the bus. There are usually taxis lined up so it's easy to hop off the train and grab a cab. Overall, it's pretty clean. It's a good place to do some... More

My wait for the train was peaceful and quiet. Nice clean facility. Glad they had a Subway restaurant located on the first floor.

I like the 2nd floor, where the train station is - for some reason, customer service there is better than customer service for buses. I really like going somewhere on the train. I don't like that there are many "interesting" people there.
