Location and Transportation


Both Midlothian and Posen are conveniently located in the southwest suburbs of Chicago and central to the city and communities north, west, east and south. They are part of the Chicago Southland Region, also known as “The Nation’s Crossroads.”

Commuters may easily access Interstates 294, 57 and 80. One of the most desirable modes of transportation for getting in and out of Chicago, the Metra, provides fast and direct service. Midlothian’s new Metra train station, considered a jewel on the suburban line, is complete with a clock tower and a concessionaire.

Several PACE bus routes serve Posen and Midlothian. Shopping districts, schools, hospitals, courthouses, other Metra stations, and Midway Airport are stops along these routes.

Chicago’s Midway Airport is a short trip north on Cicero Avenue. Its location and numerous destinations make Midway a convenient facility for travelers. O’Hare International Airport may be accessed easily off of Interstate 294 going north. A hub of national air transportation in the United States, O’Hare is served by 70 domestic as well as foreign, commercial, commuter and cargo carriers that service all 50 states and numerous foreign countries. Group charter coaches provide a comfortable way to get to and from either airport.

Midlothian provides its residents with the MASH (Midlothian Area Short Hops) van, operating from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays.

This free service of Midlothian’s Public Works Department provides transportation anywhere in Midlothian with both pick-up and drop-off.

Also in town is an Illinois Driver’s License Facility. While many people need to take a day off to renew their driver’s license, residents here can stop in at the facility at their convenience.

Posen and Midlothian are suburbs in Cook County and they benefit from countless county services. Neighboring suburbs include Crestwood, Oak Forest, Markham, Robbins, and Blue Island.
