Getting Around

UChicago Shuttle Bus

Frequent shuttles are available to help you travel around campus and the Hyde Park area:

  • UGo Daytime Shuttles: The University provides free daytime shuttle service around campus and portions of the neighboring communities. Shuttles are a safe and convenient way for all students, faculty, staff, University of Chicago Medicine staff and Laboratory and Charter School students and staff to get around.
  • UGo NightRide Shuttles: The University provides a comprehensive nighttime shuttle service that travels throughout the campus as well as the Hyde Park neighborhood. NightRide shuttle routes are within one to two blocks of nearly every building on campus. Routes are designed with specific University destinations in mind to make traveling around campus more convenient. All College Housing residence halls are designated as a stop.

The University partners with the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) to provide three area bus routes: 171, 172, and 192 Express. There are also several other CTA routes that serve the area, such as the 2, 6, and 55.

For those who prefer to walk, most campus classrooms, libraries, and residence halls are within walking distance of each other. Nearby parking is also available. To learn more about transportation and parking options read the 2021-2022 Transportation & Parking Guide.
