Illinois terminal is always great to visit. I have used Amtrak and CUMTD service from there. Inside is a Subway restaurant and many vending machines.

The staff here is... 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.
