Northwestern and CTA Offer Free Bus Service Throughout Evanston

Modified: September 1, 2015

An agreement between Northwestern University and the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) allows Northwestern students, faculty, staff and anyone else with University identification to ride the CTA’s No. 201 bus to campus and other Evanston destinations for free.  

Beginning this year, the free CTA service for Northwestern riders will be offered from September through June. It will take the place of the Ryan Field Shuttle and offer more buses, longer service hours and extended routing. At the same time, local traffic congestion will be reduced with the consolidation of redundant transit options. Read more in Northwestern's News Center.
