Compared to many colleges, DePaul has one of the easiest campuses to get around—which is one reason that bringing a car to campus is unnecessary. Between Public Safety, the El trains, Metra, CTA buses, and cabs, getting around Chicago is pretty easy once you figure it out. Public transportation in Chicago is easily accessible, relatively cheap (especially for students who receive a U-Pass), and more environmentally friendly than a car. It is extremely easy to grab a cab on any of the main corners in Lincoln Park at any time of day or night.
The Amtrak and Metra trains are quick and well-maintained for students looking to get out of the city for a weekend, and Midway and O'Hare International airports are both accessible via the E" or flat-rate cabs. When it comes to transportation on and near campus after dark, Public Safety provides rides to and from all places, including off-campus spots like the El stations, Dominick’s, and Advocate Illinois Masonic emergency room (available 24/7).
