Blue line to Addison. Uber from the Olive Garden if it's around rush hour.

likefunnysmart

Yes! If you land during rush hour a cab will take forever - blue line is much faster

like

Call the Uber as soon as your plane gets to the gate

Always Cab, Uber can take way too long. Cab line at terminal 2 never has a line so can consider walking to terminal 2 when 1/3 cab line gets outrageous

You poor souls still in taxis Pro tip: Uber black is cheaper (by 10-20%) and nicer than taxi and is only a 5min wait. The pick up for Uber black is right next to the taxis (middle downstairs pick up lane). Plus Uber points

like

Maybe it depends where you’re going, but taxi is close to $50 for me while Uber black is closer tom$100-$120

Call when you step into jet bridge unless you’re in C. For C, call when you step on escalator down into neons

Nah. At C, ping Uber from jet bridge. You’ll get to pickup within 3 minutes of each other usually

Even Monday morning. I live in Lincoln Park and i take a car service (just an Uber driver i found i like), and have her take me. Still cheaper then UberX and nicer car.

Get an Uber black - it’ll come just as fast

Always blue line then Uber... Getting out of ORD via car is rarely faster

Do you friday work in the cab and get off early on friday

Blue line. Then call Uber from half way pt

Yeah the Uber points are for sure worth an extra few minute wait. I usually come in terminal 1, if I get a B gate I call one when we get to the gate, if I get a C gate I call it when I get off the plane. Once you hit Uber Platinum you can cancel for free as long as you rebook in 15 min so you can sort of game the system to get what works

Every time I have ever canceled, I request a refund of the fee and they always give it to me 🤷🏻‍♀️

Where do you live?

Live somewhere you can take the blue line!

Cab. Do not deal w the mess that is shared rides at ORD

Uber has been taking 20 min to pickup from 2E. The app says 10 min and does not change for 10 kin. I went back to taxis

I do taxi because I have a narrow window to get home and see the kids before bed. Since Über the taxi lines have gone down considerably, and I’m old-school and lived in a pre-Über world

Maybe pension is worth $2.5M so I think that means I should have $5.7 total you want death to have no financial impact. Also was going to do $1M of that in perm w/ LTC rider. Sound right?
