6 via Uber is dicey. Could easily be an hour drive

Prob 5:15-5:30

Would not recommend Ubering at that time- it’s less stressful and quicker to take the blue line during rush hour.

OP’s question was specific to the blue line - at that time of day from Milwaukee and grand it takes ~50 minutes- I would aim to depart from the blue line station at 5:30.

Also google maps has pretty accurate travel info including expected duration

Thanks everyone. Scope was delivered.

Yeah it’s horrible traffic on 90/94 during rush hour. Would prob take 1.5 hrs in an Uber. Blue line for sure

From Washington the blue line can still take 45-1hr, +10 mins to navigate from the Blue ohare stop to security

like

530 if you take blue line. 6 if you uber.
