Transportation and Parking

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.

Corner of Madison/Morgan (1010 W. Madison): Evening hourly/daily parking (4pm-5am) and weekends, anytime up to 12 hrs. Payments ($10) are made at the lot kiosk.
