Northwestern Ryan Field Express

Service to Wildcats Home Games

Service Dates:

To Be Announced  Additional service may be added if games are rescheduled.

Notice to all NU Ryan Field Express passengers:
All seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.  All passengers are strongly encouraged to arrive early at all boarding locations. If all seats are filled, extra passengers may still board but will be required to stand for the duration of the route.


The NU Ryan Field Express departs the Northwest Transportation Center (Schaumburg) two and one half hours before kickoff of every home game. Buses arrive at Ryan Field one hour before kickoff. See for official game schedule.

Return: The first bus will depart for Schaumburg when the bus reaches capacity or 30 minutes after the game ends, whichever comes first. Additional buses will depart 30 minutes after the game ends.
Cost: Now you can use your Ventra card or personal contactless bankcard for quicker boarding on ESPD buses. Riders may continue to use cash—only $4.00 per person each way (exact change is required), or the Pace Premium 10-Ride Plus ticket (but only until July1).

Surcharges apply for riders using regular Pace/CTA passes, and can be paid for with cash or Ventra transit value. Free rides for Ride Free Card holders and up to two children (under 7 years old) riding with each fare-paying adult. Reduced fares are available for qualified riders.
