Chicago's network of trains, buses and bikes might seem confusing, but it's downright intuitive compared to the public transportation options in other major metropolitan cities. Snag a Ventra card and you'll have access to CTA trains and buses, which you can use to explore neighborhoods like Logan Square and Pilsen. Hop on a Divvy bike and you can use bike trails to set your own course through the city. If you're feeling like a trip to the suburbs, board a Metra train and explore the world outside of Chicago's city limits. Allow us to help you make your way along the rails and streets with our guide to Chicago public transportation.
