Connect Transit,[1] formerly Bloomington-Normal Public Transit System is the primary provider of mass transportation in McLean County, Illinois. The system consists of 17 fixed routes, plus Illinois State University Redbird Express service that run until midnight on weekdays, and 3am on weekends. It's basically a shuttle that only goes to locations on campus and no longer locations such as Walmart, nor apartments like College Station Apartments and Campus Point Apartments, for they are no longer our priority. The majority of the bus fleet consists of Gillig Phantom buses, with five Gillig Low Floor buses supplementing.
