Welcome to River Valley Metro

Loyalty Parade in Bradley on Sunday, April 26th causes a detour of routes. See Service Alerts for more details.

Road construction on Rt. 45 between Armour Rd. and St. George Rd. is causing some significant delays for some of our buses. Please allow for this as you plan your travel needs for the next few days.

Our new Manteno parking lot is open!

Free parking is now available adjacent to River Valley Metro Mass Transit District’s Metro Centre in downtown Manteno. More than 60 parking spots are available for commuters using River Valley Metro’s bus service from Manteno to Midway Airport or to the University Park Metra train station.

With River Valley Metro’s free parking, and tickets costing only $2 each way, commuters can save money, relax, and avoid the stress of traffic and long term parking. This new travel option offers a great alternative for anyone traveling to the Chicago area from downstate Illinois or Indiana.

This project was made possible by the cooperation and assistance from the Village of Manteno. River Valley Metro greatly appreciates this partnership.
