Bus Service to/from the Region's Airports

Parking at O'Hare can cost up to $60 per day. Taking a taxi from Midway can cost an arm and a leg. Wouldn't you like to have more cash to spend on your trip by getting to and from the airport for just $1.75 each way by riding Pace?

Elgin to O'Hare in 40 minutes and $2.00?  

Yes! with Pace's new express bus services.

Pace provides 17 routes that serve either O'Hare International (ORD) or Midway (MDW) airports. Your drop off and pick up locations are conveniently located near Midway's airport entrance, O'Hare's airport ATS ("people mover"), or the CTA Blue Line, which connects into O'Hare Airport. The O'Hare ATS is free, while transfers to the CTA Blue Line cost $0.25.*

Bags ride free! There are no luggage restrictions on Pace buses. If you're traveling with caged pets, they ride free as well.

Save money that would be otherwise spent on driving and parking your car at the airport!   Look for your Pace route map and schedule at the links below to help plan your trip.

Visitors to northeastern Illinois who don't have a VentraCard can ride Pace buses by paying with your personal bankcard (if it contains a contactless chip) or by paying cash, with exact fare required on the bus.

* If your trip consists of a transfer between a Pace bus and the CTA Blue Line, that transfer price is cheaper if you have a Ventra Card or if you have loaded Ventra transit value to your personal contactless bankcard. Ventra is valid on both Pace and CTA. Transit value can be used to pay for rides on CTA or Pace, and allows you to transfer between the systems for only $0.25. If paying cash, you will need to pay $1.75 on the Pace bus and separately buy a $3.00 limited use Ventra ticket to board the CTA Blue Line at all stations except O'Hare (or a $5.00 Ventra ticket at the O'Hare CTA rail station).The Ventra system (including your personal contactless bankcard) allows you to buy fare products, such as a 7-Day pass valid on CTA and Pace, or load transit value. Ventra is valid on both systems.

Transit value can be used to pay for rides on CTA or Pace, and allows you to transfer between the systems for only $0.25.
