Flying out of ORD this weekend at 8:30am. Is it better to take taxi/Uber and when should I plan to head out? I live in Streeterville. Many thanks in advance!

If you can get to the blue line, I’ve taken that from the grand stop and it goes directly into ORD. Super convenient when there is traffic and you want to avoid it

Seconding this. OP, especially if you’re flying out on a Friday (one of the most congested days getting to the airport) you should take the blue line

If you have precheck and don't check bags, you can get there 30 minutes before boarding and have plenty of time. So try to get there around 730.

830 AM is not too bad, you can probably schedule a ride to pick you up at 630. That leaves a little time for delays (shouldn't take more than 45 minutes at that time of day).

Do you need to check bags ? Do you have pre check ? Do you like a lot of time at the airport or just a little ?

Saturday mornings are pretty quiet at the airport. and no traffic on the Kennedy. That being said everything is a bit of a cluster at the airport right now. If you have TSA Pre and aren’t checking a bag, I’d shoot to get there around 7 and leave around 6:30. Give yourself 15 minutes to get a taxi/Uber.

(If you don’t have Pre Check or need to check a bag, I’d add 15-20 minutes to that)

Taxi will be cheaper than Uber if you can get one. (and Ubers hate going to the Airport as was posted a few weeks ago).

+ I haven’t used it to get to the Airport, but the Curb App has been great lately for getting Taxis around the city and much cheaper than Uber.

When I lived in streeterville I’d get there 30 min before my flight would leave since I had precheck and I don’t check bags. Usually would give myself 40-45 min with an Uber/taxi.
