Chicago Transit Authority (CTA): The CTA’s convenient and easy to use bus and elevated/subway train lines – including the famous “L” – carry passengers around town and to major attractions. The CTA website offers a valuable overview of transit services and rates, a guide to the system, instructions for first-time riders and much more. A one-way ticket full fare is $2.25. When paying cash change is not provided, so use the exact amount.
Taxi: Taxis are available on a first come, first serve basis at the lower-level curb at O’Hare International Airport (ORD) and Midway International Airport (MDW). There are no flat rates because all taxis run on meters. The fare is approximately $40 from O’Hare and $30 from Midway to the downtown area. However, during rush hours ( Monday-Friday 4:30pm-7:00pm), the cost may double. For wheelchair accessible vehicles, call United Dispatch at 1-800-281-4466.
