AIR TRAVEL: Chicago has two major airports: O’Hare International Airport (ORD) and Midway Airport (MDW). Chicago is a hub for several major airlines.
Public transportation: The CTA offers low-cost transit to downtown Chicago. You’ll need to buy a card at vending machines available near the train entrances.
From O’Hare, take the Blue Line to Forest Park, get off at the Monroe stop. Walk about 3 minutes east to State Street. Less than 45 minutes total time.
From Midway, take the Orange Line to the Loop, get off at Harold Washington Library stop. Transfer to the Red Line toward Howard Street and take it to the Monroe stop. Or instead of transferring, walk a few blocks north to State and Monroe Streets. Less than 45 minutes total time.
Cabs: From O’Hare, about $40 plus tip, 30-40 minutes though traffic can vary widely. From Midway, about $30 plus tip, about 30 minutes’ travel time depending on traffic.
Ride-share: You can book ride-sharing services through apps like Uber readily in Chicago, at generally a little less cost than a cab and at about the same travel time.
