Shuttle schedule and U-Pass usage during Winter Break

Dear Students,

As winter break approaches, we wanted to make you aware of important information about your U-Pass usage, the intercampus shuttle schedule, 8-RIDE, and other transportation options.

Intercampus Shuttle and 8-RIDE
There will be no intercampus shuttle or 8-RIDE service Wednesday, December 17 through Sunday, January 11. Both services will resume normal operating hours on Monday, January 12.

LL Express
Get to the airport this winter break by taking the LL Express! LL Express is a comfortable motor coach bus that travels from Lake Shore Campus to O'Hare and Midway for only $20 per ride. Also, don't forget to like LL Express on Facebook!

You can continue to use your U-Pass during Winter Break, but you will need to load separate funds on the pass. Visit LUC.edu/upass for additional details on how to add funds, how to replace your card if it is lost, and more. Information about U-Pass can also be found at www.transitchicago.com/upass.

If you have any questions about the shuttle or 8-RIDE, please contact Campus Transportation at 773.508.7036 or campustransportation@luc.edu. If you have questions regarding your U-Pass, email upass@luc.edu or call 877.669.8368.
