Comfortable, fast and frequent trains run on-time, making the weekday commute a snap.

CTA and PACE provide convenient, economical and frequent bus service to and from Blue Island throughout the south suburbs and Chicago.

Whether you’re on a quick trip across town, or embarking on a journey out of state, you can be on your way within minutes. And for those times you’d like to get away to Indiana’s beaches or Michigan’s lakes, you’re already well past Chicago’s congestion when you “think outside the Loop,” in Blue Island.
