About these directions: A fast way to find information on these pages: Control F. A box appears. Type in keyword then click “next” until you find the information for which you are searching.

Please use the contact information with each listing to confirm the services, hours of operation, and admission charges of each destination.

There is more than one way to reach most places. Where possible, we have selected one that can be used from/to every South Shore Line train every day of the week and is easy to explain. We have given details to assist you in making your trip.

In Chicago, transit connections from South Shore Line trains use Chicago Transit Authority buses or trains. Please note that service conditions may change unexpectedly. Street conditions or delays may require buses to be rerouted or trains to omit usual stops. We advise that you contact the RTA travel information center, (312) 836-7000, to confirm these directions or if you need further assistance while on your way. The information center operates from 5 a.m. to 1 a.m. every day of the year.

 www.Metrarail.com/googletransit and www.transitchicago.com are great helps in getting around Chicago.

Some walking is involved in most transit trips. We have indicated the walking distances. In these directions a "block" is the distance to the next street corner. From 8 to 16 "blocks" make one mile. For those trips indicated as wheelchair accessible, stairs may be mentioned as landmarks but any such stairs can be detoured using a nearby elevator or ramp.

These directions indicate the estimated riding time on each bus or train to help you gauge when you are nearing your stop. In trains, route maps above the doors of each car will help you count the number of stations to where you are going. Waiting time is in addition to the riding time. Waiting time for each Chicago Transit Authority bus or train averages about 10 minutes but can be longer, up to 20 minutes, occasionally 30 minutes or more.

When beginning your return trip toward the South Shore Line by bus, look for a marked bus stop or bus waiting shelter along the OPPOSITE side of the street from where you left the bus. Any exceptions are indicated in the "Return" travel directions from each destination.

THANK YOU for using the South Shore Line for your trip into Chicago and home again.
