CCC 2016 | Transportation

Flying to Chicago & Getting to CCC 2016

Dominican University is only 10 miles from Chicago's O’Hare International Airport, a major hub which can be reached from virtually everywhere in the world.

Chicago's second airport, Midway, is also about 15 miles from Dominican University and serves numerous U.S. domestic destinations.

All four O'Hare terminals (T1/2/3/5) and the Midway terminal have taxi lines at the arrival level, with 24-hour service. Use the regular/city taxis, not the suburban taxis. Taxi fares should be about $30 (or less), taxis can be shared. Public transportation is available in Chicago, but connections to the airports are cumbersome and not recommended.

The Chicago Hotel Shuttle is also available. Check prices and consider number of people travelling together - often taxis are more economic in the end.
