PEORIA (WEEK) — CityLink is offering area college students multiple ways to save money during the school year.
CityLink has several routes that access higher education institutions in the Peoria area, including both Illinois Central College campus locations; Bradley University; Methodist College; Robert Morris University; University of Illinois at Springfield-Peoria Center; University of Illinois College of Medicine; and Saint Francis Medical Center College of Nursing, according to a release.
Students pay 50 cents when used in conjunction with a valid student ID. Other options for students are the 30-Day and Day Pass. The 30-Day pass offers unlimited rides for 30 consecutive service days and is available for $40.
The Day Pass is $3 and allows unlimited rides during a single service day, and is perfect for non-commuter students who may live on the Illinois Central College, Bradley University or Methodist College campuses without a car and want to explore the Greater Peoria Area on the weekends or get a job off campus, according to the release.
Additional discounts on passes for students may be available through the individual college or university. Students are encouraged to check with their school regarding discounts.
The 30-Day Pass and Day Pass are available for students to purchase at both ICC campus locations. The 30-Day Pass and Day Pass are also available for students to purchase at Bradley University at the cashier’s window in the Controller’s Officer located in Swords Hall.
The 30-Day Pass and Day Pass are always available for purchase at the CityLink Transit Center, located at 407 SW Adams Street, and the CityLink Administrative Offices, located at 2105 NE Jefferson Avenue.
