CityLink Provides Transportation During IHSA March Madness Basketball Tournament
CityLink provided transportation during the 2017 IHSA Boys Basketball tournament at the Peoria Civic Center with the March Madness Express Shuttle. This service has been provided by CityLink since the IHSA tournament came to Peoria in 1996. The shuttle consists of 6 buses that provide continuous service from participating Northwoods Mall area hotels and East Peoria area hotels from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. each weekend of the tournament. It is the most convenient and affordable way for out-of-town fans to explore Peoria while they are staying at area hotels during March Madness, and it provides a great opportunity for local fans to avoid the hassle of parking downtown.
