The Illinois Terminal, located at 45 East University Avenue in Champaign, Illinois is an intermodal transportation center which opened in January 1999, and provides Amtrak train service and various bus services to the Champaign-Urbana area. Owned by the Champaign Urbana Mass Transit District, the building also houses a Subway restaurant, the Champaign office for Michael Frerichs, Illinois State Senator for the 52nd District, and the offices of the Junior League, as well as a school, meeting spaces, and banquet rooms.
Illinois Terminal was built with funds provided by the Federal Transit Administration, Illinois Department of Transportation, the Champaign-Urban Mass Transit District and the city of Champaign, and was named for the Illinois Terminal Railway, an electric interurban line that ran from Champaign, and at one time extended as far as St. Louis. The track and platforms of the Illinois Terminal are owned by the Canadian National Illinois Central Railroad.
