We Can All Agree: Transit is the Best Way to Get to Lollapalooza!
July 29, 2019
Attending live music outdoors is a must-do activity for many Chicagoans during the summer. In our region, we’re lucky to have music festivals that feature a wide range of options for all different tastes. One that comes to mind has been a Chicago staple since 1991: Lollapalooza! The four-day festival at Grant Park starts Thursday, August 1 and ends on Sunday, August 4.
Parking around Grant Park is very expensive, so we can all agree that public transportation is the way to go.
CTA, Metra and Pace make getting to Lolla easy! Starting Thursday through Sunday, Metra will provide extra trains, expand passenger capacity and adjust schedules on most lines to accommodate the increase in ridership anticipated during the four-day event. CTA will add service on rail lines, and various bus routes provide connections from the Chicago Union Station or Ogilvie Transportation Center Metra stations and Grant Park.
To help Metra riders locate CTA buses at Union and Ogilvie stations, CTA and Metra will place sign boards directing riders to the appropriate CTA bus route. Buses serving those routes will also have signs in their windows indicating they serve the Lollapalooza site in Grant Park.
