Welcome to the LRTP 2040 Website!


Sustainable Choices 2040 is the long range transportation plan that guides the evolution of the transportation system in the Champaign-Urbana urbanized area over the next 25 years. The plan strives to use the existing infrastructure to optimize mobility while promoting a multi-modal transportation network that encourages environmental sensitivity, accessibility, and economic development to enhance quality of life for all users.

Your input will continue to support us as we update the Sustainable Choices 2040.


Previous LRTP

The Champaign-Urbana Urbanized Area Transportation Study (CUUATS) began the update of the Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) in January 2009. The LRTP is a document that details how the local area transportation system should evolve over the next 25 years. This document must be updated every five years as a requirement mandated by the Federal Highway Administration in order for communities in the urbanized area to receive federal and state funding for transportation projects.

I think that people who use the bike lanes should obey traffic law. Why do we have bike lanes if people are not going to be safe using them? Bikers don't stop at stop signs or lights and turn in front of cars all of the time. I respect the bike lanes and always watch for bikes, but get annoyed when they don't obey the law.

I enjoy the MTD. It covers a ton of routes that I need to use often. I do wish that they would run earlier in the day though (pre-7am).

The one thing that would be really nice is to have the weekend route that the Orange used to have down Church Street/up University Avenue. When we first moved to our home on Fair Street my children and I used it often. It was especially nice in the summer so we could do running around town errands which left my husband free to do outdoor projects without having to stop and play weekend chauffeur so often.
