Lab does not provide any type of transportation (bus service) to school. However, Lab families who live in the Hyde Park-Kenwood area or are coming to Lab from other Chicagoland areas (including Indiana, and surrounding suburbs) have several good transportation options.
If you live in the Hyde Park-Kenwood neighborhoods, you are likely within either a short drive or walking/biking/scootering distance from Lab. Lab families who live in other neighborhoods may come to school in a variety of ways.
Carpooling: Once you are enrolled at Lab you will have access to the online family directory where a zip code search may help find other families living in your neighborhood that you might carpool with.
Private van service: Lab families may also choose (often in groups) to use a private van service to get to and from school.
Other available local transportation options include CTA bus routes #171 (Hyde Park), #172 (Kenwood), and #192 (Hyde Park/Downtown). In addition, UChicago Shuttles run 7 different free shuttle routes around campus and surrounding neighborhoods. Additional transportation options include CTA’s rail system; the Green Line and Red Line train service as well as commuter rail service provided by the Metra Electric District serving Hyde Park and the South Shore line with service from South Bend to downtown Chicago, also with a Hyde Park train stop.
