^ if any part of your journey involves a bus, you can throw the entire concept of time right out the window. with buses, you simply have to deal with being on their schedule. sometimes a route will go fast, sometimes it can be agonzingly slow. some bus drivers don't seem to know what an accelator is and others will keep the thing rolling along at a good clip. sometimes 5 buses will come within a 15 minute span, and then the next bus won't come for a half hour after that.

there's no rhyme or reason to anything dealing with buses in chicago. when you ride the bus you are simply on their time, and the bus will come when it wants to come, and you'll get to your destination when the bus wants to get you there. it's just the way it is.

Thanks Steely Dan. According to that site, I'd spend nearly an hour on a bus. I'm trying to figure out a way to get from Edgewater to O'Hare... in a reasonable amount of time... in rush hour. So far no luck :(... by transit or car. :sleepy:

Foster to Jeff Park and then the Blue line to O'hare. Although Foster tends to be backed up during Rush Hour, Lawrence handles the traffic better and ends up at jeff park.

For rush hour, maybe take Brown line to Lawerence and then the Lawerence bus to Jeff Park, then Blue line or Take Red line to Washington and then take Blue line to O'hare. They need to connect the North Side of Chicago to the NorthWest side via 'L or major avenues!
