Transportation and Parking

My location
Get Directions
Mass Transit (Recommended): We are a 5-15 min walk from two CTA train stops: Green/Pink Line (Morgan stop) and Blue Line (UIC Halsted – use Morgan exit). We are a 15 min. walk from Ogilvie Transportation Center and a 20 min. walk from Chicago Union Station.  See Metrarail.com for commuter train information.

Driving: We are conveniently located near the I-90/94 Expressway and are closest to the Madison Exit.

Street Parking: Close to the Main Center, all North-South streets are meter-free.  Just be sure to check street signs as there are a number of loading zones and permitted parking zones in this area.  East-West streets are typically metered; however, as you continue to drive west, away from the Main Center more streets are meter-free. Meters are free on Sundays and federal holidays. You are encouraged to download the ParkChicago app ahead of time to facilitate easier meter feeding.

Parking Lots: There are some lots within walking distance where you can pay for parking.  SpotHero or Parqex can be a convenient way to arrange parking in a lot or private space.  For a map of nearby parking lots, click here.
