Alternative Transportation Options

Whether you are looking for an eco-friendly mode of transportation, do not have a car, or simply do not want to drive to campus, NIU has several options for getting around campus. Listed below are some of the programs, tools, and maps to make getting around campus a little bit easier!

Need a car? Borrow a Zipcar! Northern Illinois University has partnered with Zipcar to bring self-service, on-demand car sharing to the area. To use a Zipcar, simply register as a member, reserve a car online or by phone, use your Zipcar to enter the car and drive away. When you’re done, return the car to the same location where you picked it up.

You can find Zipcars in Lot X north of Patterson Hall and Lot 15E, at the Campus Recreation Center.

To learn more, please visit NIU’s Zipcar website.
