Service Updates and Announcements
Shuttle Service Updates
Beginning August 28 and continuing through October 6, Lake Shore Drive will be under construction between North Ave and Monroe St. This is expected to delay Intercampus shuttles and increase travel times. We encourage all riders to plan for delays and take an earlier shuttle than normal. All shuttles can be tracked via TransLoc Shuttle Tracker.
Since our initial communication introducing the TransLoc Rider app and announcing the transition from DoubleMap to TransLoc for tracking University shuttles, many community members have adopted the new tracking system. Accordingly, the DoubleMap website will no longer be available as of August 31. Based on your feedback, digital screens on campus will now display the projected shuttle arrival times for nearby stops.
Original message: In the spirit of continuous service improvement, we are 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.
Please note the following start dates for shuttles this fall.
- Intercampus Shuttle and Chicago Train Station Shuttles: Regular service continues year-round.
- 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: Regular service will resume Monday, September 17.
- Chicago Express: Regular service will resume Saturday, September 29.
- Shop-N-Ride: Regular service will resume Sunday, September 30.
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.
Parking permits for the 2018/19 parking year will go on sale Monday, September 17. Faculty and staff with current 2017/18 permits will receive a renewal e-mail on September 17 and may renew online.
Storage of vehicles in main campus lots is prohibited for periods of longer than 48 hours. Vehicles may not be stored in Ryan Field lots for more than 5 consecutive days, and must be removed for all home football games.
The two east rows of the Cook Hall lot will be closed for a special event on Thursday 9/13 and Friday 9/14.
Parking controls (gates, card readers and pay stations) in the North and South Parking Garages are now operating. Current permit holders will gain access to the garages by swiping their Wildcard at the entrance gates. Daily parking for those without current permits is available for an $8.00 fee. Daily parking may be paid for at pay stations located in each elevator lobby. Further detailed information is available on this web site under the Policies & Information tab above.
Parking permits will not be required and garage fees will not be assessed beginning Thursday, September 13 through Wednesday, September 26 to accommodate student move-in and related events. Other parking regulations (reserved parking, no parking zones, etc.) remain in effect.
Construction contractors are prohibited from parking in all main campus lots and garages. Contractor Lot permits will be valid only in the Ryan Field West and East parking lots (# 101/ 102). A free contractor shuttle is provided.
Resident Student permits ("R", "R9") will continue to have access to the North Garage.
