Service Updates and Announcements

This page is updated with changes for Shuttle Services as well as Evanston Parking and Chicago Parking announcements.



Shuttle Service Updates

Martin Luther King Jr. Day Shuttle Service

Please note the following changes to University shuttle service on Monday, January 21, in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Evanston Loop and Campus Loop shuttle schedule enhancements

To enhance campus safety, the Evanston Loop and Campus Loop shuttles currently begin at 5:00 p.m. The added service will depart the Library/Norris stop at the following times:

We encourage everyone to stay inside a safe building and track the shuttles on TransLoc. You can also use TransLoc to request a Safe Ride vehicle. Here are some safety tips from NUPD:

Chicago Evening Loop Shuttle Changes

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.

DoubleMap Service Ended, Download 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 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.
