Saluki Express

Main Content




The Saluki Express mass transit system is SIU Carbondale’s answer to parking and traffic problems. SIU Carbondale students, faculty, and staff, as well as the Carbondale community, are encouraged to get on board. Relax and be transported to work, school, or popular destinations such as the University Mall, Illinois Avenue, and Murdale Shopping Center.

Regular academic year routes will begin four days prior to the start of the fall semester. The regular academic year routes consist of six weekday routes and three weekend routes (while school is in session). When school is not in session, one route (the Break Route) will be in service.  No routes will run on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.
