Multiple modes of transportation dominate the Loop's streets. Serviced by local and regional trains, major interstates and one of the city's first protected bike lanes, it's the most well-connected area of Chicago.
Connections mean many things. For suburbanites and neighborhood-dwellers, it means nights and weekends enjoying the Loop's arts and attractions, bars and restaurants, and world-class retail. Hop on the CTA, or take the Metra or South Shore Lines and you're in the heart of one of America's great downtowns in a matter of minutes. And once you're here, getting around is as easy as renting a Divvy bike or joining a guided tour of the Loop's rich history and architectural gems.
For those who live, work or play in the Loop, it means that all the amenities of the city are well within reach—from O'Hare and Midway international airports, which are accessible in less than 45 minutes by train, to adventures in Chicago's diverse neighborhoods.
And for everyone, it makes for a Loop that is truly at the center of it all. Culturally diverse, economically robust and all-together energetic, it's no wonder why so many people make the decision—day after day—to see what the Loop is all about.
