Argonne-University of Chicago Shuttle

The schedule below is effective March 17, 2014.

A free shuttle bus makes round trips every weekday between Argonne National Laboratory and The University of Chicago.

The shuttle does not run on laboratory holidays. For more information, please contact Tracy Lozano ( or 630/252-9625) at Argonne.

Important: The shuttle may not be used for the purpose of commuting to work. The purpose of the shuttle is to promote collaboration between colleagues at the University of Chicago and Argonne by making it easier for them to visit one another and attend seminars, conference and other events at both campuses.

Argonne commuters are encouraged to make use of GreenRide Connect and the Pace Vanpool Program.

University stops: The corner of Ellis and 57th Street (shuttle is traveling southbound on Ellis) in front of the Research Institute (northwest corner), near the CTA bus stop (1)**, and the northwest corner (shuttle is traveling southbound on Lake Park and picks up near the Walgreens) of 55th Street and Lake Park (2).

**Please note: Due to construction the 57th and Ellis stop has moved down the street to the court yard entrance to the Library on Ellis.

Argonne stops: See schedule below.
