CTA Provides Extra Rail Service to Airports for Thanksgiving Holiday Travelers

Published on : Wednesday, November 27, 2013

CTAThe Chicago Transit Authority’s (CTA) rail service to both Chicago O’Hare and Midway International airports provide Thanksgiving travelers with convenient, reliable and affordable transportation. To accommodate the expected increase in customers traveling to the airports, the CTA will operate more frequent service on the Blue, Orange and Red lines and longer trains on the Brown, Green and Orange lines beginning in the early afternoon hours on Wednesday, November 27.

Travelers can reach O’Hare via the Blue Line in approximately 40-45 minutes from the Clark/Lake station in the Loop. Elevated rail customers can transfer to the Blue Line for no additional charge at the Clark/Lake station. Red Line customers can connect to the Blue Line by using the pedestrian transfer tunnel at Jackson—also for no additional charge.

All east-west bus routes between Grand and Foster and many north-south bus routes also serve as convenient transfer points to the Blue Line.

Orange Line trains provide direct service from downtown to Midway. In the Loop, rail customers can transfer to Orange Line trains at the Clark/Lake station for no additional charge. In addition, Red Line customers can transfer to the Orange Line at the Roosevelt station at no extra charge. Estimated travel time between the Loop and Midway is 25-30 minutes.

To avoid traffic congestion, customers can combine the convenience of driving with the economical savings of public transit by using CTA Park & Ride facilities. Parking is available for more than 6,000 cars at CTA’s 17 Park & Ride facilities, mainly at rail terminals, throughout the CTA system.
