How to Get to the Chicago O'Hare International Airport

Chicago O'Hare International Airport is roughly 29 kilometres from downtown. If you're not catching a ride with someone then driving to the airport may not be the wisest option. There is plenty of parking, but it fills up quickly. Once you are in the airport the ATS fully automated transport system, dubbed the "people mover" connects all the terminals, the parking facilities and the "kiss and go" drop-off spot.

  • O'Hare is so spread out that the three domestic terminals have a separate parking garage from the international terminal. In addition two economy lots rim the facility. The main garage is for domestic flights with hourly parking on the first level and daily or longer parking on all other levels and the two main outside lots. Valet service is available in the domestic parking facility. Rates run from as low as $10.00 USD per day for the Economy G lot to $74.00 USD per day for the main domestic garage and the international terminal.
  • The Blue Line, part of the Chicago Transit Authority's metro train service, goes from downtown Chicago to all three domestic terminals. International passengers take the ATS to or from the domestic terminal. Fare is $5.00 USD for the 45-minute ride.
  • Taxi service takes around 35 minutes for the same one-way trip at a cost of $40.00 USD plus tip, traffic and weather permitting. The Airport Shuttle is another option, running $14.00 USD per person with similar travel times.
