Program/Service Notes:

Transit Reservation Information Program (TRIP) is a transportation coordination and resource center for both riders and transportation operators within and surrounding the East Central Illinois Counties of: Champaign, Clark, Coles, Cumberland, DeWitt, Douglas, Edgar, Macon, Moultrie, Piatt, Shelby, and Vermilion. TRIP provides services ranging from information and referral to transportation coordination (trip planning for specialized transportation needs). While medical, work, and education trips are our top priority, TRIP can be used for any reason, by anyone, regardless of their age, needs, or circumstances. TRIP works with only qualified transportation operators and agencies within East Central Illinois. Typically, curb to curb transportation is scheduled by TRIP (i.e. trip pickups are at the curb of your origin location and drop offs are at the curb of your destination). Transferring from one transportation operator to another may be the only possibility for cross county transportation. In these cases, TRIP will make every effort to make these transfers operate as smoothly as possible.
