Parking & Transportation

Evanston Hospital has a large parking garage which is a PAY ON FOOT facility—with no cashiers at the garage exit. Patients and visitors can park at established rates. In accordance with the City of Evanston Noise Ordinance (Section 9-5-23A), activated vehicle burglar alarms are strictly prohibited on the grounds of Evanston Hospital. 

Parking pay stations are located in the Northwestern, Michigan and Notre Dame lobbies of the parking garage. For more information call 847.570.2120.

To PAY ON FOOT patients and visitors should do the following:

  • When exiting your vehicle you will need to take your ticket with you.
  •  Before returning to your car, pay for parking at one of the convenient pay stations located in a garage elevator lobby.
  • When you leave the parking garage, you will need your paid ticket as an exit pass.
  •  Credit cards and cash are accepted at pay stations. Credit cards are accepted only at exits.
  • Discount stickers will no longer be used.  A discount “chaser ticket” (color ticket) will be used.  The chaser ticket will be inserted after the parking ticket (white ticket) and will provide the discount and final rate.
