URBANA -- The Champaign-Urbana Mass Transit District is running out of space and money for its buses, but help could be on the way. The garage on University Avenue houses 102 buses, and that number is growing.

New hybrid buses are too tall for the garage. But, IDOT is offering $50 million to businesses in need.

Now, MTD is putting together proposals to show how much it needs some of that money. It will find out by January if it will see any help from the state.
