Chicago Midway Ground Transportation

Chicago's Midway International Airport is the second largest airport in the Chicago metropolitan area and the state of Illinois and is just 10 miles from the downtown area. It lies south of Interstate 55 and west of Interstate 90. Direct access to the airport is from Highway 50, which runs north and south. This road is also called South Cicero Avenue or 61 Street. Passengers can use the Chicago Transit Authority's L trains to get to and from the airport. The L route serves downtown Chicago and the Loop, the center for government in Chicago as well as the site of the historic shopping and theater district in the city. Access to the L route lies south of the airport, just past the parking garage at Chicago Midway International Airport.

Beside the train, passengers can use taxicabs located by the baggage claim area at the airport, located on Level 1. Car rentals are available at the airport. Passengers can be picked up at the lower level of the airport and there is a cell phone parking lot for people to park while they wait to pick up a passenger. Private shuttles and limousines can also transport passengers to their destinations. Reservations for car rentals, shuttles, or limousines are a good idea during heavy travel periods.

The parking garage is south of terminal and three longer term parking lots are east of the terminal. The airport has an economy parking garage to the northeast of the terminal where the rates are lower than in the main parking garage. The Chicago Midway International Airport has free shuttle services that carry passengers to and from the terminals. Drivers who have hybrid cars can use parking spots noted by signs that have a green leaf on them in the parking lots at the airport. All parking lots have handicapped spaces close to elevators and shuttle bus stops, and these shuttles use wheelchair lifts to pick up and deliver people in wheelchairs. All the parking spots are numbered and the airport authority recommends that drivers write down the spot where they parked to make finding their car easier when leaving the airport.
