Located in the heart of the country, Chicago is the largest city in the Midwest and one of the most convenient cities for travel.  Choose Chicago offers extensive directions and information on traveling to Chicago no matter how you plan to get here:

O’Hare International Airport, located 17 miles from downtown, is one of the largest airports in the world. It is North America’s major international gateway airport, servicing over 67 million passengers to and from over 200 destinations around the globe.

Midway International Airport is located 10 miles from downtown Chicago and offers another convenient travel option for visitors.  It is the nation’s premier point-to-point airport, offering value-oriented leisure and business travel to over 60 destinations.

Ground Transportation
Both airports offer plentiful taxi service to downtown and the suburbs. Rates range from $40-50 from O’Hare, and $30-40 from Midway. Rates vary based on travel time and are subject to change.

The Chicago Transit Authority serves both airports for easy and economical travel between downtown and Chicago neighborhoods using the ‘L’ train. The 24-hour CTA Blue Line connects directly to O’Hare and the CTA Orange Line connects directly to Midway.
