There’s so much to love about Chicago’s Old Town neighborhood, especially its convenience. Living here, you’re surrounded by historic architecture, trendy restaurants, ample entertainment options, beautiful parks and — on top of that — access to anything else the city has to offer. Old Town has multiple bus and train lines, so public transportation is a breeze. Plus, there are easy-to-reach highways that make driving in and out of the city simple.
If you’re thinking about moving to this neighborhood and wondering about Old Town transportation, here’s what you need to know.
Old Town is a highly walkable community, putting plentiful dining and shopping options right in your neighborhood! Even better? You don’t have to own a car to get in and around the city and beyond. Thanks to the area’s public transportation system, you can get wherever you need to go on local buses and trains. The CTA’s Brown Line and buses #22 and #36 serve Old Town, and the Metra commuter railroad will take you to the suburbs.
If you want to travel by car, the city’s grid system of roads makes it easy to navigate, and Old Town highways offer routes out of the city. Keep in mind that parking options vary by building and street — whether they’re garages, street parking or lots. If you have a car, cruise the roads on your own — or, if you don’t, feel free to hail one of the many taxies in the community. While Chicago is notorious for rush-hour traffic, stay updated with the latest delays on local news radio.
