Trains and Buses

Naperville is fortunate to share a train line with Chicago, giving you access to everything the city has to offer and the world beyond. 

Metra is the commuter rail services that carries travelers as far west as Aurora and east to downtown Chicago on the BNSF Railway (BNSF). The quaint station is just two blocks north of campus and a quick 45-minute train ride will put you in the middle of one of the world’s greatest cities. You can avoid fighting traffic on the tollway, finding and paying for parking downtown and adding to carbon emissions all at once by taking the train.

To get around greater Naperville and the surrounding suburbs, you can ride the Pace buses. For about $1.75, you go east and west between the Naperville BNSF Metra station and the Fox Valley Mall on the 530 bus route or north and south between Naperville BNSF Metra station and the downtown Wheaton Metra station on the 740 bus route.
