Thread: The L-Train from Midway/Ohara

  1. #1

    The L-Train from Midway/Ohara

    If I flew into Chicago to Midway or O'hara Airport, does anyone know if you can take the L- Train from the airport,to Northwestern's campus?
    And if the L runs 24 hours?

    Thanks -r

    Take the redline north to the purple line, and the Purple line to Central. I think the stadium is a few blocks away.

    You would take the Orange Line out of Midway to the Loop downtown. Switch to Redline. Then switch to Purple.

    I didn't know that one of the Chicago airports was named after Scarlett O'Hara.
    I really hate Penn State! (And I'm not that wild about Iowa either.)

    It is a bit of a pain, but possible. See the resources above. The red line is 24 hours as far as I know, but not sure about the other lines. But that doesn't mean you want to be on it late at night.

    Found this on wiki:

    Transportation


    The closest transit stations are Metra commuter railroad's Central Street station and Chicago Transit Authority's Central station on the Purple Line.
    Pedicab services are frequently available around the stadium during Wildcat home games.
