Ongoing research about intercity bus operations in Illinois has reviewed federal and Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) intercity bus policies and regulations and obtained experiences from other states regarding their strategies to meet federal and state-level requirements. This study will examine the transportation providers’ viewpoint about intercity bus services in Illinois. In this regard, the research team will conduct a telephone survey of intercity bus service providers to assess how they meet the transportation needs of Illinois’ rural population. The outcome of this survey will give insight into the state of intercity bus practice, and provide information about future such efforts in Illinois.
