Chicago From Lombard

Postby Warwyk » Wed Dec 14, 2016 9:13 am

I will be staying in Lombard(or very close by) and want to get into the city to see the sights.  I plan to use the trolley to move around the city for two days(hopping off and on) and will visit MOSI.  Should I drive to the city and try to park at the city lots in Grant Park and at MOSI?  It see the trains don't go all the way to Lombard.  I see there are some park and ride locations.  What is my best way to get to the city?  P.S. Big city traffic does not bother me but I would like to keep life simple if that is possible.  Thanks.

Hi Rich, Thanks for confiding in me for your Chicago questions! I would try to avoid driving into the city whenever possible, especially during the prime summer season. The parking rates are extremely high and traffic is out of this world! But you are in luck. Lombard has a train terminal for Metra! You won't be sorry using Metra because of the low cost(daily, weekly, and monthly passes are available) and the promptness of the Metra system. The line ends downtown, just a quick walk from trollies and the CTA(Chicago Transit Authority). Check out the Metra Line Map on this URL to see where they stop in Lombard --http://metrarail.com/System_map/index.html

Then you can plan your trip using their online schedule at this URL --http://metrarail.com/schedule.html

Check the prices for tickets and even buy them online at this URL --http://metrarail.com/Data/farechk.html  Metra has an outstanding website where you can buy your tickets ahead of time and print them at this URL --http://metrarail.com/TBI/index.html

I really hope this helps you. Enjoy Chicago and have a great time at the MOSI!!
