For the person who wants to hop on a bus and avoid endless fees and parking, you’re in luck. All you’ll have to do is pick up a $6 CTA Fare Card at O’Hare. This will cover the full range of fares you will have for a round trip to and from the airport.
Head to Wrigley Field from O’Hare by taking the CTA Blue Line from O’Hare to Addison St. and then take an eastbound 152 Addison bus.
How to Get to Wrigley Field by Train from O’Hare Airport
If you hate the bus, then the train is probably the next best option. For this, you need to understand that you won’t be able to just hop on and off a train and be done. To begin with, you need to take the Blue Line when you are in O’Hare and take it downtown. Simply purchase a transit card at the O’Hare CTA train station which can be purchased before entering the CTA turnstiles. One-way tickets are $1.50. Take the CTA Blue Line train from O’Hare Airport to the Washington Street stop. Exit the train to the platform and look for the stairs that go down and indicate the passage to the Red Line. Head down the stairs until you reach the catwalk and walk one block to the next set of stairs at the end of the tunnel. Go up the stairs one level to the red line. At the platform, look for northbound trains heading to Howard Street or Evanston. You won’t go as far north as Howard Street or Evanston before getting off the train to go to Wrigley Field. Watch for the train to arrive at Addison Street and exit the train. At this point, you will only be one block from Wrigley. Don’t worry about being the only person getting off here, as the train will likely be full of other fans also going to the game if you arrive within 1-2 hours of the first pitch. Just reverse the trip to go back to O’Hare. You can use the remaining balance on the same rate card.
