Subject: Re: Chicago Airport Transportation
Hello Pat,

Both Jonathan and Sandy are correct about the L train going from Midway to downtown Chicago, at a cost of $1.50. However be advised that it is a little bit of a hike to get to the actual station at the airport, and then once having arrived downtown, you must get from the closest stop to your hotel. Unfortunately the closest L stop is at least 8 or 9 blocks from the Sheraton Towers. A transfer to a bus would probably be necessary, especially with luggage.

There is an van which goes from Midway to all of the major downtown hotels. You buy your ticket either at a booth in the airport, or directly from the driver. The service is called Continental Airport Express, it costs $14 one way, and the vans leave every 15 minutes from Midway. Here is their website:

There may be one more shuttle service (Omega?) from Midway, but I am not familiar with it.
