Airport Public Transit Directory

CHICAGO O'HARE INT'L AIRPORT (ORD)                             Map Your Route

Chicago Transit Authority's (CTA) Blue Line connects downtown to the airport.  
Trains run every 8 to 10 minutes from 5:00am to 11:00pm.  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.  To get to the station, go to the lowest level of the main parking garage
near elevator 4.  Leave plenty of time to find your way from the terminal to the transit
station (its quite an adventure finding it). More information at
or call 312-836-7000.

Pace Suburban Bus Service operates from the airport to Evanston and other CTA
subway lines (Route 250), and LaGrange and Bellwood (Route 330).  These two
routes leave from the Remote Lot E, accessible from the Airport Transit System.  
Fare is $1.75.  Other routes depart from the CTA Blue Line station.  For more
information on suburban routes, look at and click on
schedules/maps, and use the route finder to get a list of routes from O'hare airport.  
Pace's phone number is 847-364-7223.
