Traveling Around Town

Bordered on its north side by I-55 and I-90/94, the neighborhoods of Chicago’s Midway Airport area and Southwest side are easy to reach by road, rail and air. Both I-55 and I-90/94 are just a quick link away from the many other major thoroughfares that service Chicago and the Midwest, including I-80, I-57 and I-290. Among its many other functions, the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) offers a simple option for getting around locally with its sophisticated bus system. Additionally, the CTA Orange Line stops near Midway Airport, providing easy access to the entire Chicago area.

Midway Airport, one of the nation’s fastest-growing airports, is located 10 miles from downtown Chicago, and with three concourses, is served by major airlines such as Air Tran, ComAir/Delta-Northwest, Frontier, Southwest and Porter. Midway has recently undergone a redevelopment project, which included a new terminal and concourse building, expanded ticket counters and more restaurants and shops. Traveling in and around the Midway area is quick and easy, and any destination, local or national, is just a short commute away.
