The Illinois Terminal is an intermodal passenger transport center located at 45 East University Avenue in Champaign, Illinois, United States. The facility 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 halls.
