CHICAGO MIDWAY AIRPORT (MDW)                                   Map Your Route

Chicago Transit Authority's (CTA) Orange Line connects the airport with downtown.  
From downtown, subways and bus lines can take you anywhere you need to go in
the region.  Trains run every five to ten minutes, nearly all day.  Cost is $2.25, and
you must purchase a transit card at the station in order to go through the turnstile.  
Your first transfer to a bus is .25 (which must be put on your card).  Other transfers
are free.  Cash transfers are no longer accepted, and you'll have to pay full price if
you use cash.  Be sure to put extra transfer money on your transit card at the time of
purchase.  Day passes are $5.75, three, seven, and thirty day passes are also
available.  More information at or call 312- 836-7000.   Bus
