Intercampus Shuttle


Intercampus Shuttle General Information

The Loyola Intercampus Shuttle is a supplemental transportation service available for current Loyola University Chicago students, faculty, and staff. A valid Loyola ID is required and must be shown to ride the shuttle. U-Pass or Drivers License are not accepted. Service operates on weekdays only, when classes are in session during the academic year (fall/spring only).

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), at approximately 20-minute intervals, Monday through Friday, starting at 7 a.m. The final shuttle buses depart LSC at 12 a.m. 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.

  • 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. 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.

Shuttle Bus Tracking

Shuttle riders can track the location and estimated arrival times of the intercampus shuttles as well as receive real time travel alerts and notifications on their mobile device, laptops and desktops by going to https://lucshuttle.com. We recommend that riders bookmark the site for quick, easy access. This site will replace the loyola.thebus.mobi and otp.timepointsoftware.com sites previously used to track the shuttles and provide real time travel alerts and notifications. 

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.
