Location and Transportation

The Stevenson Expressway (I-55) is a quick 15 minutes north via LaGrange Road (U.S. Route 45), which is the main thoroughfare through the heart of Orland Park. The Veterans Memorial Tollway/I-355, completed in 2007, is accessible west of Orland Park, connecting to the western suburbs. This thoroughfare has opened up new potential for the Village as a residential option for the many people employed in the suburbs along this corridor and as a travel destination for those looking for entertainment and activity options. Interstate 80 borders the southern end of Orland Park and provides connections to numerous roads and interstates.

Commuters looking for an alternative to driving board Metra Southwest Service trains at three stations in the area for a convenient trip to Chicago’s Loop. The Main Street Triangle District, a planned downtown development at 143rd Street along Southwest Highway and LaGrange Road, includes a new $3 million commuter train station and ample parking. Additional trains on the Rock Island Line are available at stops in nearby Tinley Park and Mokena.

The improved Pace Suburban Bus Service operates three routes in Orland Park, one of which ends at the Midway Airport Station, where it connects with CTA Southwest Orange Line “L” trains to downtown Chicago.

In addition, Pace works with the Village to offer dial-a-ride service for residents in Orland Park and Orland Hills. This service is especially useful for disabled riders and senior citizens.

Commercial air transportation is readily available for travelers, as Orland Park is situated just 25 minutes from Chicago’s Midway International Airport and 40 minutes from O’Hare International Airport.

No matter where you need to go, it’s easy to travel in and around the Orland Park area.
