Winter and Thanksgiving Break Announcements
With the cold weather upon us, Campus Transportation would like to make you aware of important transportation updates.
Shuttle Pick-Up and Drop-Off Location at the Lake Shore Campus
In order to provide shelter during the winter months, the intercampus shuttle pick-up and drop-off location at the Lake Shore Campus will be adjusted November 12, 2014 through March 1, 2015. Passengers coming from the Water Tower Campus will be dropped off at the curb cut on Campus Drive (the current pick-up and drop-off location). The bus will then proceed past the parking garage entrances and will pick up passengers at the main parking structure waiting area.
Thanksgiving Break Schedule
Due to Thanksgiving Break, there will be no intercampus shuttle or 8-RIDE service Wednesday, November 26 through Saturday, November 29. Normal 8-RIDE service will resume on Sunday, November 30. Normal shuttle service will resume on Monday, December 1.

Loyola University Chicago seeks to provide efficient, convenient, and safe transportation options for students, staff and visitors. The urban setting of the Lake Shore and Water Tower Campuses provide a wealth of transit options including train, bus, bicycle, pedestrian, and car. While the University meets all parking requirements mandated by the City of Chicago, due to our urban location, there can be limited access to convenient parking locations.
Loyola encourages the reduction of single occupancy vehicle trips to campus through alternative transportation modes such as; public transit, Metra, Pace, and ride sharing. Additionally we encourage healthy commuting options like walking and bicycling. Increased use of alternative commuting options improves the quality of life on campus, strengthens our ties to our neighboring community, and reduces impacts on the environment.
