Northwestern adds new shuttle stop at Lincoln Avenue and Sheridan Road

Northwestern on Monday added a new stop at Sheridan Road and Lincoln Avenue to the Campus Loop and Chicago Express shuttle routes.

The campus shuttles will pick up from the Chicago Transit Authority bus stop near the intersection, according to an email to the NU community from University Services. NU expects to install its own sign in about a week.

The addition comes after a post on CampusVoice asking for a new stop near Elder Hall garnered more than 90 likes. The Associated Student Government website lets students share their ideas for improving campus life.

“If something is that important to that many students, it’s important to senators and ASG committee members,” said Haley Hinkle, ASG director of transportation.

Hinkle, a Medill freshman, said the new stop likely won’t affect the schedule shuttle because the campus buses already run on Sheridan Road.
