City Water Main Work Will Affect Intercampus, Ryan Field Routes from March 27-30

Please be advised that the City of Evanston will be doing water main work Friday, March 27 through Monday, March 30 at Sheridan Road and Emerson Street. This will reduce Sheridan down to one lane in each direction near the construction area during working hours (7:30am to 3pm). This may cause delays for the Intercampus and Ryan Field routes.

Relocation of Grove/YMCA Stop on Ryan Field Route

Due to a request from the YMCA, the Grove/YMCA shuttle stop on the Ryan Field route has been permanently relocated a half block east to 960 Grove St. Please note:

  • The Grove/YMCA stop will no longer be used to pick up or drop off passengers.
  • FM installed a new sign at 960 Grove. The Grove/YMCA sign will remain in place for now; it has been modified to direct riders to 960 Grove.
