    The Chicago Transit Authority offers bus and rail transportation. The bus is great. Easy to find routes and times with your cell phone. If you are a visitor, buy a pass for a few days or a week. Skip Uber and Lyft and save a lot of money. Buses run often and are clean. Subway stations underground are not clean and you do not feel as safe. Lots of regular folks ride the subway but it’s also a haven for homeless and some struggling with addictions. No transit employees or police in sight. Take the bus but avoid the subway if you are alone.

    Well I love the train ride. I dont mind the ageing shabby surroundings of the sleeper car, but the food is dire! Flexible Dining they call it. Stouffers microwave meals would be better.
    For the cost of the ticket, the quality of food is very very poor.
    Restore traditional dining please, or else I wont be doing this again.
    And presentation goes a long way. There is no presentation, no care, no attention to detail.

    We came to the station to take the train out to Winnetka. It’s a pretty big station with shops and stuff as well. The most positive thing in my opinion was that the employees were all so friendly. We had a little trouble finding the trains and the security downstairs pointed us right to it. Then when buying our tickets the lady helped us get the cheapest option based on just what we needed and told us which platform the train was on. Being used to NYC where the staff seems clueless and also never want to help it was really nice to see as a tourist.

    Punctual, efficient and courteous service. I was transferred from O’Hare to Champaign. The pick up was easy, the car was clean and well maintained. The driver was polite, helpful and courteous. He wore his mask properly. Everything was easy and I felt very safe throughout the 2 and a half hour drive. Very reliable. The price was reasonable.

    We loved catching the water taxis to go from Navy Pier to Shedd Aquarium and then back. It was a nice break from all the walking, plus we got great photos and enjoyed the breeze. Would totally recommend this as an option for travel along the shoreline attractions. Was also delighted that on the way back we switched boats quickly and continued up the riverwalk toward the Mag Mile. We got off at the "Apple Store" dock and hit some shops on the way back to our hotel. Loved the water taxi!

    Our transfer with a different company cancelled and left us scrambling last minute. We called EJ Concierge less than six hours before we needed a late night / early morning airport transfer at 2:45 am. They came through for us and our experience with them was five stars from start to finish. They were courteous, arrived early, and got us to the airport in plenty of time. I would definitely recommend them.

    I used to use this company all the time for work when I was traveling nonstop. The reality is my business is travel is mostly over - maybe once a year now.

    However, I started using it for my family travel and this company is just absolutely GREAT. I have been using them now for around 6 years?

    I have never had a bad experience in all those years. Carla (think I am spelling that right) feels like a family friend to me.

    If you need transportation, I would highly recommend this company whether it is for business or for family.

    Finally, besides being reliable and good - the value is also very good IMO.

    I used this company to pick me up from O'Hare and take me to my apartment in the Gold Coast. Can't say enough positive things about the service. I paid extra to have the driver meet me at baggage claim, and as soon as I landed I had a text from the driver telling me exactly where he was. Car was brand new 2022 Mercedes that was beautiful. Great experience all around - definitely recommend, and will 100% be using them again.

    Went on the Chicago architecture river boat tour which lasts around 1 1/2 hours.
    Great views of the city which also gives you an idea of where the main buildings and restaurants are.
    Tours are guided with very knowledgeable guides providing information on the buildings and attractions.
    The boats also have a bar for refreshments.

    We have used Ride in Bliss a few times now and are always impressed with their service. We have 2 small children, and having the confidence in having a ride to the airport with safe car seats makes all the difference to having a stress-free trip. And on top of that, providing coffee, waters, juices, and snacks is a great plus! The cars are always incredibly clean, the drivers are professional, yet friendly, and they really try and go the 'extra-mile' for you. Our driver on the latest trip even had a few small toys to give the kids, and a much needed pack of gum for mom and dad! I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for a much better ride than your typical taxi or ride-share. Thanks for the great service!

    This was our second trip with the Irish Express. Our first trip was 7 years ago and it was great back then. Last weekend was our most recent trip, and it was even better this time! We brought our 7 and 9 year old with us this time and they loved it too! Irish Express is very family friendly and the customer service is just outstanding! This is the only way to visit Chicago and see the Irish play football! Can't say enough good things about this business!
