HARRISBURG - Rides Mass Transit District has entered into an agreement with Southern Illinois University Carbondale to provide Saluki Express bus services.
"We are very excited about what this partnership will mean for the students and the residents of the area," said RMTD CEO Bill Jung. "Not only will this enhance the availability to travel around Carbondale and the SIU campus, but enhance connectivity across the entire urban area."
In addition to being able to access the Saluki Express routes, SIU students will now be able to use all of RMTD's services throughout its 18-county service area for the same transportation fee. Similarly, the public will now have access to Saluki Express routes using RMTD passes or tickets.
"Whether a student needs to get to St. Louis, Marion, Harrisburg, Evansville or travel to other regional destinations, they'll be able to," said RMTD operations manager Adam Lach. "This affiliation with SIU is such a wonderful opportunity for students to get where they need to be."
Services will begin under the agreement June 11.
Those interested in learning more about the transportation options can call 844-220-1243.
