  • ORD From terminal 5 to terminal 3

    I am traveling to Waterloo, Canada from Chicago ORD. What is the most convenient transport from terminal 5 to terminal 3? Do I need to go through security check? Do I need to check out my luggage at terminal 5 and check in at terminal 3?

    i'm arriving at T3H5 with AA; what's the nearest exit to a taxi and how do i get there? i checked ord maps, no clear way out will 1 hour from landing (hopefully on time) be enough to get to union station by cab (b4 morning rush hour)? thanks for guidance

     

    In general, the taxi stand is right outside of the baggage claim level.

     

    Traffic is bad most of the day in Chicago between O'Hare and downtown. However, a taxi can probably do the trip in less than an hour.

     

  • From ORD to Kalamazoo with a small dog
    May 12, 2013

    Flying from Finland to ORD in June with a small 7 pound dog and we'll need to get to Kalamazoo. Have found out that neither Amtrak nor Greyhound accept animals. Flying and some car services are quite expensive. Any pointers for an affortable transportation are highly appreciated.

     

    If you google 'Transport Chicago Ord to Kalamazoo, you get, among other options a taxi fare quote of $58 (plus customary tip).

     

    $58 is awfully cheap for such a long trip. Can you drive? If so it would probably be cheapest to do a one-way car rental from ORD to Kalamazoo airport.

     

    Unfortunately I don't have a licence. And yes 58$ sounds too good to be true as all companies I found charge around 300$. But will check it out. Thanks

     

    Indian Trails also has a Chicago-Kalamazoo bus - it doesn't say on their website that they don't carry pets, so you could call and ask. http://www.indiantrails.com/

     

  • How to Get to Kankakee, il

    Need to know the name of the Bus Service that goes from Ohare to Kankakee, il........I tried all 7 of the ones on the ohare ground transportation and none of them go there...Anyone know the name of the one bus service that does?

     

    There is no scheduled direct bus service from O'Hare to Kankakee. 303 Taxi offers flat rate taxi service for $103 http://www.303taxi.com/local/kankakee.html If you're looking for something cheap that will take a little longer, you can take the CTA blue line to downtown chicago (Clinton station) and take the Greyhound bus for $14-$26 or Amtrak ($7-$18) to Kankakee. It does appear there used to be scheduled bus service from O'Hare to Kankakee operated by a company called Lincolnland Expess, but it shut down in 2012.

    They were very affordable, clean and classy looking car. I think what impressed me the most was that the driver was waiting on me 30 minutes even before my plane touched down. 773 777 7778 and 773 372 2815 that is the number for their service

     

  • ohare to gary airport options

    4 of us need to get to Gary airport from Ohare midday weekday..what are my options with prices

     

    How much time do you have? Cheapest option would be to take the CTA Blue Line to Clark & Lake, walk 5 blocks to Randolph St. Metra/Millennium Station and take the South Shore Line to the Clark Rd./Gary Airport Station (which is 1.5 miles from the GYY terminal). I estimate this would take about 3 hours. The next cheapest would probably be to rent a car from Enterprise or Hertz (the two car rental options at Gary) one-way from O'Hare to Gary. This would probably take 1-1.5 hours if you leave O'Hare before 3 PM. A taxi or shuttle would run about $100 and probably be the easiest.

     

    Very useful information, you worth it. Thanks for sharing.

     

    ended up using mypersonaltaxi.com... cost was $115 and service was excellent.. brand new cab and great driver

    Taking a flight out of ORD I live in MICHIGAN what stop do I get off at to take the blue line to ORD? Many thanks

     

    The CTA 'L' Blue Line arrives at ORD at Terminal 5; I presume, the stop is called either O'Hare Airport, ORD Airport or ORD Terminal 5.

     

    Actually, Terminal 5 is the only terminal you can't walk directly to from the CTA station. The CTA station is located underground in between terminals 1, 2, and 3 and has an underground walkway to each of them. The Blue Line (the only train in the station) goes directly to several stations downtown.

    Is there a busline out of Chicago ORD that goes to Kalamazoo, MI? Need a way to get back to WMU in Michigan after flying into ORD.

     

    It is best to pass by at the Information counter near the baggage claim to find out about transportation options. Note that the Bus/Shuttle Center is on the ground level (Level 1 near elevator center 3) of the elevated parking garage. From Chicago's Union Station you can take the Amtrak train to Kalamazoo (see: http://local.search.yahoo.com/search?p=amtrak+station&addr=Chicago+IL§ion=map (look at number 1). You can also rent a car - the disance is 164 miles on I-94.

     

    im in car service in chicago and we do long distace for good prices you can contact us at 773 501 3439

    I am an inexperienced traveler to US and I will arrive in Us through ORD; my destination is Louisville KY; what is the best way to go to Louisville with 2 baggage each around 23 kg

     

    Note that Kentucky is far from the State of Illinois, where you arrive. Of course, you could have booked your flight via ORD to the Louisville Airport and take from there the bus to your end destination (The TARC public bus (502-588-1234) stops on the island on the east end of the terminal) - however, the cost of the two bags for the second leg of our journey is more than taking a bus. Greyhound bus service would run between the main bus station in Chicago to Louisville, but with two bags, you are best off to take a taxi to the station. For Greyhound bus service visit greyhound.com. Note also that on arrival at ORD you need to go through passport check, pick up your bags and go through customs clearance.
