The Weekend Desk Report

"The University of Illinois is spending $900,000 on four buses to shuttle employees and others between its Urbana/Champaign and Chicago campuses," AP reports.

Wait, what?

"The service is for faculty members, students and staff members traveling on university business."

Okay, but is there really a lot of university business that requires such a commute? UIC students who have a Thursday class in Champaign?

"The service is scheduled for launching on Oct. 31, and will offer three round trips daily between the two campuses. They will depart in the early morning, at midday and late afternoon."

Three trips daily? What am I missing here? Or are these party buses? Then, maybe.

"University President Tim Killeen says the idea has been under consideration for almost two years."

He would have decided sooner if the commute by car hadn't been so distracting.

"Killeen says the 18-seat buses will be 'well-appointed' with onboard Wi-Fi, tables and a restroom so people can work in comfort."

Also, with bumper stickers: My other bus is a classroom.

How is the distance here calculated at just 2 hours, 21 minutes?

Driving to Orland Park when I worked in the Tribune's bureau there used to take 45 minutes to an hour. Is Champaign a lot closer than I think?
