Transit & Relocation

Northwestern supports those who commute to work at the University, as well as employees who relocate to the area.

Benefits for commuters

Effective January 1, 2019 the commuter benefit will be deducted from your paycheck on an post-tax basis.

The University has partnered with PayFlex, a major processor of commuter benefits, to administer our Commuter Transit and Parking programs (the campus parking programs administered by the Evanston Parking Office and by University Services for the Chicago Campus are not included).  It covers the popular CTA, Metra and Pace transit systems as well as the Northwestern Shuttle, as well as other local transit systems.

There are also benefits available in New York City, San Francisco, and DC.
