The Springfield Mass Transit District (SMTD) provides public transportation on 17 daytime fixed routes throughout the Springfield, Illinois area. An additional route provides service, on Saturdays only, to Southwind Park. Five night routes operate Monday through Friday with the first bus leaving the transfer center at 6:45 PM and the last bus leaving the transfer center at 11:45 PM. The last bus travels the route until the last passenger is off.

The fixed-route buses provide service to medical facilities, major employment centers, tourist attractions, major retail shopping centers, schools, colleges, professional buildings, the central business district and all major points of interest.

Most buses are lift-equipped or have ramps to provide accessibility to those who cannot board the bus via steps. All routes are accessible, but all trips on each route may not be accessible. Check the "Routes & Schedules" page to verify the trips that are accessible.

The SMTD also operates Access Springfield, which is origin-to-destination service for persons with disabilities who cannot use the fixed-route SMTD buses. Consult the Access Springfield page for more information and to submit an application for the service.
