The Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) gets you where you’re going with our three transit operators: the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) bus and rail system, Metra commuter rail, and Pace suburban bus service.
Day use lockers are excellent value - Jumbo lockers as big enough for two carry on suitcases and go for $18/day.
Train today from Houston Texas was 4 HOURS late arriving to Chicago
Closed for renovation.
take the sleeper train at least once in your life. a cool experience
Make sure to visit the old section of the station - it's gorgeous.
Take the stairs through the food court. You will get out faster.
Short-lived business class, Wi-Fi and food service discontinued on the Hoosier State on 2/1/2015😠
Beautiful architecture ❤❤
This is a huge station. It's pretty simple to navigate though. There's ample signage everywhere. Gotta love that.
Lot's to eat and clean but too dayum many people in a space...
The trains do leave on time, lots of good cheap food.
Get there early. Confusing to many people
Taking the wolverine? The line is always super long, but don't panic! It's a big train, you'll fit. 🚂🚃🚃🚃
Do not eat at Robinsons Ribs. The guy who was serving food was washing down the wall behind the deep fryer. He did not wash his hands before preparing food. Sooo gross!!!!
We’re here tonight at Day 1 of #WineRiot #Chicago - Lines are long, come early!
Trains are the best!
I've been here twice in my life and I know this place like I've been here y whole life! Great Place! Very Crowded!
So disappointed in how often the Amtrak leaves late 😕😐😑
Chicago Union is a great station. Free wifi, lots of restraint choices and good signage.
Get there early and be sure to buy your tickets in the terminal, save yourself some money on the train.
Great iconic meeting place for almost all metra and amtrak lines.
Always buy your ticket at the station!
Rush hour = awesome people watching!! I love watching people run in their work clothes!
On train waiting to leave station to Rensselaer
One of the main train stations of the city, you must visit the old side of it where the huge American flag is located.
Heading to see some MIG folks.... #mighasmorefun
Pro-tip: For fun, see if you can hold your breath from Union Station all the way to your stop!

If you're trying to grab a taxi after your train arrives, your best bet is to walk a block away from the station and hail from there. Avoid the taxi stand.
Don't miss your train.
Don't miss the great hall. If you're coming from the South concourse, go past the baggage claim and make a right. North, past the Metra ticket windows and then left.
Bitchin' with a Capital B!
Worst Amtrak station for boarding passengers, very slow and inefficient.

Be sure to use the clip in front of you to store your ticket for the train employees.
Walk west to discover some of Chicago's trendiest restaurants and art galleries in the West Loop and Fulton Market District.
If you are only one person do not sit at a four seater or if you are two people don't move the chairs during rush hour to face each other and take up four seats , have some courtesy
Hey there shitty customer service! Nice to see you again!
Look for #GirlScout Cookies across from the #Metra ticket counter!
Beware of the taxis and buses!! So aggressive!!
