After you get registered with SMTD, they can drop you off at Target on 173. At this point you can connect with 2 RMTD buses. #22 N 2nd bus, travels frontage road south over to Machesney Mall and then into Loves Park and over to North Town then loops back into Loves Park. The 2nd bus route # 20 Alpine goes south on Alpine, turns left on Harlem and then right on Forest Hills, then eventually south on Alpine to the farthest point south in Rockford to RVC Stentstrom Center. Both routes connect with all other Rockford Mass transit routes.
