I'm coming to Chicago from the southeast on I-94 this weekend. Is there a place to leave my car for the weekend, somewhere close to a public transportation depot? I'm considering leaving behind the car and using public transportation until I go back home. If there is such a place, what will it cost on the weekend?

    Park it in South Bend and take a train

  • If you're coming via I-94 where are you starting from?

  • From the shining city of Ann Arbor. South bend pretty far from Chicago, but it is en route and the train rates aren't bad at all.

Basically your best bet would be to use the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District's South Shore line to take a train to Chicago.

Personally having driven on both I-94 and I-90 South East Chicago, Gary, and Hammond might not be the best places one might leave a car, so I would suggest going to South Bend as it might be a little out of the way, though not much and you can catch a train from there to Chicago's Union Station.

You can check the schedules online.

Many options. Here is one - I live right by it. Parking garage on Maxwell and Halsted. It's about 8/day. Limit technically 72 hours but never had a problem. CTA blue line short bus (#8 Halsted north), cab, or 12 minute walk. CTA stop is UIC-Halsted, will get you anywhere you need to go.

Ps - Maxwell and Halsted is directly off 90/94/55/290 so basically every expressway.

  • I haven’t checked the rates in a while but I don’t know of a better option
