Thank you for considering the SAO Group Shuttle Services.  Please contact the Shuttle Coordinator or the Student Activities Office if you have any comments, questions, or concerns.

Cost

  • All shuttles cost $30 each way or $55 round trip  
  • Credit cards accepted only

Schedules

  • Due to lack of demand, low numbers in recent years, and a wide variation in student schedules, we will not be offering end of semester shuttles this year. 

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). For shuttles returning to campus, please consider time needed to reach baggage claim and check in at GO Airport Express counter when making your reservation.
  • The confirmation email you receive immediately after making your reservation will serve as your boarding pass for your shuttle trip(s).
  • Because of the online process, all payments are non-refundable.

When taking a shuttle FROM Wheaton to either airport

  • Make sure to have your confirmation email (digital or paper) with you.
  • All shuttle busses leave from the Saga-O.  Please arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled shuttle departure time, confirmation email in hand.
  • You will be dropped at the airport departure area.  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:
    • O’Hare: Door E between terminals 1 & 3 on the lower level (arrivals)
    • Midway: Door $ Lower Level outside of arrivals/baggage claim
    • Have confirmation in hand to show the shuttle driver. 
  • If your flight is delayed, you have a couple of options:
    • If your shuttle is not the last scheduled shuttle of the day, you may wait for the next shuttle to arrive
    • You may also choose to use another service to transport you back to campus. Please document your use of this service, and email it to dylan.andres.work@wheaton.edu to receive a refund for the return portion of your trip.
    • If your shuttle is the last scheduled shuttle of the day, you must obtain transportation to campus using another company or service (follow above instructions to receive a refund). A number of offerings are listed on our Airport Transportation Guide Page.
