NU-Argonne Carpool

The Northwestern-Argonne Carpool is a user-run service that travels daily between the Northwestern Evanston Campus and the Argonne National Lab Campus. Students, professors and researchers affiliated with Northwestern are encouraged to take advantage of this carpool, which is fully funded by the Northwestern University Office for Research. Only Northwestern University students and employees may use the carpool.

Available Cars

There are two University Motor Pool passenger vehicles dedicated to the NU/ANL Carpool. The vehicles are parked in the lot east of Cook Hall. The departure times are determined by the drivers. Typical departure times from Northwestern are between 7 and 8 a.m. Departure times from Argonne are around 5:30 to 6:30 pm. Each car can accommodate a driver and four passengers.
