Getting here via public transportation

Perhaps one of the easiest ways to reach Lincoln Park is via Chicago’s CTA bus and ‘L’ service. Their affordable bus and train rides are vital to the city’s tourism, business and residential sectors, and serves as a valuable resource for Lincoln Park businesses looking to attract visitors from other neighborhoods or tourists staying at downtown or airport hotels.

Lincoln Park is served by three lines: the Brown Line, which offers service between the Loop and Kimball; the Red Line, which runs between Howard and 95th/Dan Ryan; and the Purple Line Express which offers rush hour service, Monday through Friday, between Linden (in Wilmette) and the Loop. Several bus routes offer service to and from Lincoln Park making access to the neighborhood and its businesses, cultural institutions and more a breeze.
