Ground Transportation

Uber or Lyft are booking services allowing customers to book and pay from their smartphone app, so they do not have to carry cash. You may book shared rides or private cars from this service.

Standard Taxis are easy to book. Place a time order or ASAP order online, or text your pick-up address to (312)TAXICAB for Yellow Cab Chicago. A coordinator will call back within a few minutes with a confirmation and ETA.

Chicago Private Car must be booked in advance, either online or by calling (773) 594-9021. The service offers discreet black sedans, guaranteed punctuality, and fare rates. Rates are usually about 15% higher than standard taxis. Airport Shuttle Service can be booked with Omega Shuttle Service for transportation from Hyde Park to Chicago’s Midway and O’Hare Airports.
