Getting Around Chi-Town

In its Midwest location home to two major international airports, Chicago is easy to get to from virtually anywhere. With rising airfares and increasing travel costs, travelers have needed to make creative tweaks to their itineraries to fit plans into their budgets. Some of these tweaks include choosing nondirect flights, many of which stop in Chicago’s airport hubs. With so many flights coming into and leaving Chicago, there is no reason why IACP 2011 attendees can’t find competitive pricing for flights to the Windy City.

Once there, travel around and within Chicago is cheap and convenient. Chicago has the second largest fleet of taxicabs in the nation, with approximately 6,900 cabs. Taxis offer discounted shared rides between McCormick Place, Midway International Airport, and O’Hare National Airport, and downtown Chicago. And if you’re driving to Chicago for IACP 2011, McCormick Place provides more than 8,000 parking spaces, in addition to other parking garages downtown.

The Chicago Transit Authority offers fast, direct train service from both airports to downtown Chicago, convenient bus and train lines to major attractions, simple fare cards, easy-to-use maps and brochures, and custom trip planning for groups.

The Metra commuter rail operates 12 commuter rail lines into downtown Chicago from the six-county area of northeast Illinois.
