Bike to the Airport

With currently more than 200 miles of on-street protected bike lanes and more than 13,000 bike racks throughout the city, Chicago is known as one of the best large cities in the country  for bicycling. In fact, by the year 2020 the city aims to be the most bike friendly city with a 645-mile network of on-street bikeways. With such a bike friendly city as its home, O'Hare International Airport makes it easy for travelers to arrive or depart from the terminals by bike.

There Are Two Ways to Reach Terminals via Bike

     1. Via the CTA Blue Line
          You can secure your bike at the nearest CTA station and take
          the Blue Line to O’Hare.

      2. Via the Airport Transit System (ATS)
           Board this free train at the ATS terminal in Remote Parking Lot E.  
           Outdoor bike racks are provided at the north and south ends
           of the ATS Terminal.

Shower facilities are available on a fee basis (approx. $11/day) at the O’Hare Hilton Athletic Club, in the basement of Terminal 2, near the CTA Blue Line O’Hare Station entrance.

Airport employees: Take advantage of the Hilton Athletic Club’s annual membership for reduced rates on access to the shower facilities.
