I look at traffic when I land. When it is bad I take the blue line to Wicker Park and then Uber from there.

Just take the train. Traffic is a nightmare and I get there in half the time. Also it’s better for the environment

But you can get a cab once you get off the train. Honestly, I'll Lyft to a blue line on Monday morning knowing it'll be faster than cab the whole way

MDW isn't much better. Construction and they are trying out new loading methods (at least with Lyft) where they queue and give you a code to a driver ....sort of seemed like a taxi line at O'Hare/Midway.

I came in a Monday night and there wasn't much traffic. My Lyft driver said he was waiting in the car line for an hour to finally get a passenger. Not many people around that night.

I waited about 20 minutes at ORD this past Monday

This is hopeless 😩 standing in the queue for taxi is also torture in this weather

ORD’s taxi lines are usually really short for terminal 1

No took 30 minutes on Tuesday

Recommend TAXi when billable. Yesterday I was on personal time- Lyft took about 7 minutes to meet in the “green zone”. However, these pick up zones are horribly disorganized with people loading and unloading across all 5 lanes- essentially making it a parking lot. So although my Lyft got there in <10 minutes we couldn’t get out of this parking lot type traffic for an additional 5 minutes- less aggressive drivers might be even longer.

I call it as I’m getting off the plane. Or, I ask the driver to meet me a level below. Problem averted
