Loyola University Chicago, in partnership with the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA), provides the U-Pass program to full-time undergrad, grad, Law, and Quinlan Graduate School of Business Programs students. The U-Pass provides unlimited travel on CTA's bus and rail system.
As is the case with transit passes, there are the occasional times when the card may not work for various reasons. Loyola University Chicago is responsible for making sure that students have their passes and that they are turned on each semester/term. We work with CTA/Ventra Chicago on any on-going issues that students may have.
Loyola University Chicago takes student transit security serious. The Chicago Transit Authority is dedicated to making sure that students feel safe when using the CTA bus or rail system. We recommend that each student refresh themselves with some safety tips for riding the Chicago Transit Authority.
