Can't find yours here? Send it to us and we'll add it below.
How can I reach O’Hare Airport from Midway? You can do this using either a taxi, available outside the terminal entrance, or using Chicago’s public transport, the CTA. The CTA route however can be very time consuming, so it is recommended to either enquire after a shared shuttle or pre-book a taxi.
