Service Updates and Announcements
With daylight saving time beginning March 10 and longer evening daylight hours upon us, we want to make you aware of the following schedule updates to University shuttle service.
- Campus Loop: From March 10 through June 14, 2019 (the end of the academic year), shuttle service on this route will operate between 9 p.m. and 3:25 a.m.
- Evanston Loop - Thursday through Saturday Service: From March 14 through June 14, 2019 (the end of the academic year), the 7 p.m., 7:40 p.m., and 8:20 p.m. shuttle runs that originate from the Library/Norris Center stop during the winter months will not operate. The other 23 scheduled shuttle runs for this route will remain the same.
In an effort to make our shuttle service as convenient and efficient as possible, there are changes to the Chicago Evening Loop that will take effect on Monday, October 1. Going forward the shuttle will go directly to the train station of riders on the bus. When you board you will now need to notify the driver of the train station to which you are traveling. If no riders are going to a specific station the shuttle will not travel to that station. The pick-up schedule from campus remains unchanged. This change will help the shuttle remain on-time and reduce your travel time to your station.
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 is no longer available as of August 31, 2018. 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.
The City of Evanston Lincoln Street water reservoir construction project is in progress. Construction activity/traffic is expected on Lincoln Street and North Campus Drive.
