Service Updates and Announcements
Shuttle Service Updates
The City of Evanston is performing asphalt pavement patching on Chicago Ave. Work is expected to take place from Monday, July 23 through Friday, July 27. This may cause delays to Intercampus shuttles. We encourage you to plan extra travel time to your destination.
Please note the following updates for University shuttle service during summer.
- Intercampus Shuttle and Chicago Train Station Shuttles: Regular service continues during summer.
- CTA #201: Service continues during summer, but Wildcards are not accepted for free rides. Riders can resume using Wildcards to ride free of charge beginning September 1.
- Evanston Loop and Campus Loop: Last day of service was June 15. Regular service will resume mid-September.
- Chicago Express: Last day of service was June 9. Regular service will resume after Fall Quarter begins.
- Shop-N-Ride: Last day of service will be June 10. Regular service will resume after Fall Quarter begins.
Please stay alert when traveling on and off campus this summer, especially at night. Remember to download the NUhelp App to access the SafeWalk feature and continue to use safety escorts provided by University Police.
In the spirit of continuous service improvement, I am pleased to announce that you can now track University shuttles with the TransLoc Rider app. This integration means our community has access to one app that allows for tracking shuttles and requesting a Safe Ride. For additional details, please see our TransLoc Shuttle Tracker page that includes instructions on how to view TransLoc.
