Intercampus Shuttle General Information
Due to temporary street closures around the Water Tower Campus on 9/13/23 between 7am and 2pm, give yourself plenty of time to get between campuses. Consider using the CTA Red Line during this time.
The Loyola Intercampus Shuttle is a supplemental transportation service only available for current Loyola University Chicago students, faculty, and staff. Service operates on weekdays only, when classes are in session during the academic year (fall/spring only). Boarding passengers must show their Loyola issued Campus Card to board the intercampus shuttle.
The shuttle stops are located at the South end of the West Quad (Lake Shore Campus) and Corboy Law Center (Water Tower Campus). At the Water Tower Campus, the line for the shuttle forms inside the east doors of the Corboy Law Center lobby.
- Shuttle buses run a continuous loop between the Lake Shore Campus (LSC) and the Water Tower Campus (WTC), arriving at approximately 20 minutes intervals, Monday through Friday, starting at 7 a.m. The final shuttle buses depart LSC and WTC at 12:10 a.m.
The shuttle also makes a trip each weeknight, Monday through Friday evening, departing the WTC at 9:05 p.m. to the Union and Ogilvie Stations.
There is no shuttle service on Saturday or Sunday.
Due to limited capacity please plan ahead and allow plenty of time to reach your destination. We suggest giving yourself an hour to get between campuses, especially during rush hour periods.
Under normal traffic conditions, travel time is less than half an hour. During peak travel periods or inclement weather, the trip may take longer.
During rush hour periods (7–9 a.m., 4–6 p.m), we strongly encourage using the CTA Red Line, CTA Bus Route 147 or CTA Bus Route 151. After 8:30 p.m. the buses run approximately every 30 minutes.
When the lines are long or do not permit boarding of the current bus, we strongly recommend use of public transportation.

Loyola's Water Tower and Lake Shore Campuses are both located close to Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) bus and train routes, including the #147 and #151 buses, and the Red Line elevated train. To give students the full advantages of public transportation, Loyola participates in the CTA U-Pass program, which gives a student an unlimited number of rides aboard all CTA buses and trains, and eliminates the need to pay cash per ride.
