Bloomington-Normal's bus service will halt service early the next two days. Connect Transit said public and employee safety drove the decision to suspend service at 7 p.m. Monday and Tuesday.
The decision comes as law enforcement and other municipal officials arrange contingencies for more potential unrest in the community following the looting of Target and Walmart in Normal Sunday night and Monday morning.
Chris Koos, the mayor of Normal, has said a curfew also is under consideration.
