Campus Transportation


Loyola University Chicago encourages its students to explore the vibrant neighborhood of Rogers Park. We also believe that student safety is a top priority. To help ensure safe travel at night, Campus Transportation offers a van shuttle service – ‘8-RIDE’ – which operates seven days a week, excluding breaks and holidays. 8-RIDE offers two primary services:



These are two fixed routes servicing the north and south sides of campus. Rambler Route South picks up outside of the Main Structure. Rambler Route North picks up outside of the Granada Center. Vans will drop passengers off at various stops, but will NOT pick up along the route. Like the call-in service, both Rambler Routes operate from 6:30 p.m. – 2:30 a.m.

Hours of operation:

6:30 p.m.—2:30 a.m., 7 days a week, excluding breaks and holidays.
Fixed routes pick up at the Main Structure and Granada Lobby ONLY and drop off at various locations along the route.

Rambler Routes will transport students FROM CAMPUS.  There are NO pickups along the fixed routes. Maps of the routes can be found here.
