There are two shuttle buses that operate on gamedays for fans trying to reach Ryan Field: (1) Campus Shuttle, and (2) Downtown Evanston Shuttle. The shuttle service is free and starts approximately two hours prior to game time. The map to the right shows exact shuttle pick-up and drop-off locations. Downtown Shuttle points are labeled “S”, and Campus Shuttle points are labeled “C”.
During the games, buses will be parked at the drop-off location (Ashland Avenue, west of the Ryan Field/Welsh-Ryan Arena) for those who must leave early. The shuttles return to campus for approximately one hour following the conclusion of the game.
After the game, Shuttles going to downtown Evanston lots will pick up on Ashland, NORTH of Walker Way (closer to Isabella). Shuttles going to the NU campus lots will pick up on Ashland SOUTH of Walker Way (closer to Central).
