  • How quick can I get to shuttle center
    Oct 15, 2014
    I have only a carry on, if no delay I arrive at terminal 2 at 8:20 pm and a Coach Line shuttle leaves at 8:45 pm - would I make that?


    It's possible. It probably takes 10-15 minutes to get to the shuttle though.

    How do I get from CHI-ORD to union station?


    Take the CTA Blue Line to the Clinton station - it is about 2 blocks from Union Station. The trip takes a little less than an hour.

    Hi, I have a flight from ORD to New York however the transit time is only 45 minutes. I know that this time is sufficient for a transfer but just incase. If I do happen to miss my flight whom should I contact? Will another flight be arrange (on the same day) if the first flight is late.


    American and United operate hourly flights from ORD to New York. If you miss your flight you will be rebooked on the next available flight. Both airlines have kiosks to get your new boarding passes. If you have a problem, go see the gate agent at the next New York flight.


  • ORD From terminal 5 to terminal 3
    Jul 24, 2014
    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?


    The only way to get between T3 and T5 is the ATS train. You can re-check your bags with American right after you exit customs in T5, you don't have to bring them to T3 with you.

    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
    May 6, 2013
    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.


  • Very good and affordable limo company
    Nov 9, 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
    Nov 20, 2012
    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
