Year-End Shuttle Changes

As the Evanston campus academic year comes to a close, please note the following shuttle service changes:

  • Evanston Loop + Campus Loop: The last day of service was Friday, June 12
  • Ryan Field: The last day of service was Friday, June 12
  • Chicago Express: The last day of service was Saturday, June 6
  • Shop-N-Ride: The last day of service was Sunday, June 7

Check Your WildCARD Expiration Date
Don't forget that you always need a valid WildCARD to ride the shuttles – drivers will not accept an expired ID. Check the expiration date on your card, especially if you are a student who is at Northwestern for more than four years. You can replace your expired ID at no charge at either of the two WildCARD offices. (Please note: a replacement fee applies if you do not return the expired WildCARD.) Questions? Call one of the WildCARD offices or email wildcard@northwestern.edu.


Ridge Avenue Construction Affects Intercampus, Evanston Loop & Shop-N-Ride Through June

Effective Monday, May 11, the City of Evanston Public Works Department will begin road resurfacing work on Ridge Avenue. This project is expected to be completed by the end of June, weather permitting. Traffic delays will directly affect the Intercampus, Evanston Loop, and Shop-N-Ride routes throughout the duration of the project. We encourage all riders to plan for extra travel time during this project and to monitor DoubleMap (northwestern.doublemap.com, or on iOS and Android apps) for real-time GPS tracking of all buses.


Union + Ogilvie Station Stop – Temporary Relocations

Construction on Chicago's new Bus Rapid Transit System has begun. It is expected to last through the end of 2015, with some lasting into spring 2016. Due to this construction the pick-up and drop-off locations for Ogilvie and Union stations may be affected, sometimes unexpectedly. We do our best to be proactive about impacts, but at times these may change unexpectedly. As we are able, announcements will be posted here on Transportation News. Thank you for your patience during this time. Information about the project may be found at brtchicago.com.

LaSalle Street Station Stop Permanently Relocated

Effective immediately, the morning pick-up location at LaSalle Street Station is permanently relocated to the afternoon drop-off location at Financial Place & Congress Parkway. If you have questions, please email shuttle@northwestern.edu.
