Reservation Process

Be sure of your departure and arrival information when making your reservation.  For shuttles leaving campus, it is highly recommended that students make reservations 3 hours before flight departure time to allow for possible delays, traffic to the airport, etc. (ex: flight @ 6:00 PM; shuttle @ 3:00 PM).

  • You will receive an immediate confirmation of your online reservation.
  • 24 hours before the break begins or your shuttle leaves campus, you will receive a shuttle boarding pass.
  • Because of the online process, all payments are non-refundable.

When taking a shuttle FROM Wheaton to either airport:

  • Make sure to have your shuttle boarding pass with you.
  • All shuttles leave from the Saga-O.  Please arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled shuttle departure time, confirmation number in hand.
  • When the shuttle arrives, the driver will ask for your confirmation number which is on the boarding pass.
  • Arrive at the airport departure area, and have a good break!

When taking a shuttle TO Wheaton from either airport:

  • Once you’ve landed, collect your luggage from baggage claim and proceed to the Go Airport Express counter pick-up location:
    • O'Hare at the following doors: Terminal 1 (Lower Level) Door 1E across from baggage claim 6, in Terminal 2 Door 2E across from Jet Blue baggage claim, Terminal 2 Door 3E across from baggage claim 9, and at Terminal 5 just outside door 5E.
