Other Transportation

Due to Safe Ride regulations or our hours of operation, there may be some situations that you need to find alternative transportation. Use this page to learn more about University shuttles, public transit and area taxi companies.

Transportation options

Consider Northwestern's free shuttle service as an alternative or supplement to Safe Ride. The Evanston Loop and Campus Loop shuttles run at night through the Evanston Campus. Other public transit options include CTA "L" trains, Pace buses and Metra commuter trains. Several taxi companies also provide service in Evanston.

Medical transport

Any student requiring emergency medical transport for a serious medical condition should call 911 immediately to be transported by ambulance. It is not appropriate to take the Northwestern Shuttle system or Safe Ride in serious or urgent medical situations.
