ImageThe trains in Chicago are communally known as the El (elevated). You will easily be able to get to any place you would
like to go within a quarter of a mile. The elevated "El" trains are color coded and run through the downtown "Loop" every five to fifteen minutes during the day.
The Red Line runs north-south; the Green Line runs west-south; the Blue Line runs through Wicker Park/Bucktown west-northwest to O'Hare Airport; the Brown Line runs in a northern zigzag route; and the Orange Line runs southwest, serving Midway airport.
A separate express line, the Purple Line, services Evanston, while a smaller, local line in Skokie (the Yellow Line) is linked to the north-south Red Line. Skokie and Evanston are adjacent suburbs on Chicago's northern boundary.

 For some, taking the train at any time is safe, but others chose to avoid it after 11 PM.
You may be able to get a Visitor Pass at your hotel, the airport CTA
stations or any other visitor center. For a certain fee you will be
allowed to ride unlimitedly on the El and CTA buses over a 24-hour period. Please visit wwww.transitchicago.com for directions to places using public transportation, maps and locations and to buy transit passes.
