I'm flying out of Chicago(O'Hare) on 8th July at a 1:30 PM flight. I reach Union Station, Chicago at 6:45 on the morning of 8th. Other than a backpack, I'll have 2 big luggage pieces(the size for international travel). I want to know- which would be the best route for me to take, to get to O'Hare from the Megabus stop, considering that I have the 2 heavy luggage bags.
- Without the luggage pieces, I would have picked the Clinton Blue Line train service any day. I've heard it runs all the time, the fare is just $3, and its about just a block or two from the Megabus stop beside Union Station(300m to be exact). But, the problem is my 2 luggage pieces. Will it be a viable option to walk all the way from the Megabus stop to Clinton Blue Line? And not to mention, once I get down at O'Hare from the train, I need to walk to the Airport transport shuttle that will take me to Terminal 5, for international flights.
- The other option is to take a taxi from the megabus stop. In that case, I'd like to know- how much does it cost normally for a taxi ride all the way to the airport; what is the normal tip you're expected to give; do they accept credit cards in the taxi at Chicago, and any other helpful information you can think of.
Any help would be highly appreciated.
