Shuttles and Buses | Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD)

Shuttles and Buses


There are a number of shuttles and regional buses that service O'Hare International Airport, making it easy for passengers all over the region to travel to and from the airport.

The O'Hare Airport Transit System (ATS or “people mover) is closed 24/7 to finalize modernization efforts and expansion of the system.

In order to maintain a travel connection between all of O’Hare’s terminals and parking lots, the CDA will operate shuttle buses to transport passengers and employees between terminals (Terminals 1, 2, 3 and 5) and from the terminals to each economy parking lot (Lots E, G, H); the Multi-Modal Facility, where Lot F and rental cars are housed; and the Metra O’Hare Transfer station. The buses will operate continuously to ensure prompt and reliable service while the ATS is closed.

Construction Alert: The Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) advises of ongoing construction of the Lower Level Utility and Pavement Replacement (LLUPR) Project on the Lower Level Roadway at O’Hare International Airport, which will impact traffic in the arrivals lanes near Terminals 1, 2 and 3.


  • Buses arrive every 5-15 min
  • Bus stops are located on both the upper level and the lower level, depending on the route and terminal:
    • Buses to parking lot F and for rental cars stop on upper level (starting April 1)
    • Buses to all terminals and all other remote parking lots (E, G, H) stop on upper level from the domestic terminals (1,2 & 3) and lower level in Terminal 5.
  • ​Buses from the Multi Modal Facility are located on the main level
    • ​​Buses are routed to specific terminals and arrive every 5-15 min

If connecting between domestic Terminals 1, 2 & 3, you DON’T have to leave the secured side and take the shuttle buses, you can simply follow the overhead signage to guide you between all domestic terminals.

The CDA is committed to providing a quick and reliable bus shuttle service as the ATS modernization is finalized.
