Chicago Parking???

Post by SoILPrtHed »

My wife and I are kinda late getting tickets to the show this weekend. We tried to get JB water taxi....Sold Out. We have heard that there is going to be parking at Soldier Field...how long of a walk is this to the venue? Will there be shuttles? Also, does anyone else have any good suggestions for parking at this venue. Have been to Toyota and Tinley, but this is a first for us. Any help would sure be appreciated. Thanks, BNers!!!!

Depending on where in the lot you park, it's about a 3/4 to 1 mile walk around the harbor. I have not heard about shuttles being used, and I wouldn't think there would be because the venue only has one road going in and out. Walking would be the best option.
No place like home when you're this far away

Pretty sure there will be a shuttle going from the south lot to the island.

My friend and I are Little Old Ladies and don't walk very far comfortably. How close is public transportation going to get us?
Will taxis be available after the concert and willing to pick us up (had horror stories in Toronto, at a similar isolated lakeside venue).?

\\Public trans will only get you so far...... if you got a handicap placcard... you may get a lil closer.
