    If the lines to O'Hare are obscene, hop on a Forest Park train and go 1-2 stops to get on a train before the madness. Works every time.

    One of the busier stations of the CTA. It connects the Blue Line (a subway) to several elevated lines.

    Avoid the elevator if you can help it. Otherwise hold your breath upon entering. It stinks of urine!

    If you exit through the Thompson Center, there's a touch-free pump of hand sanitizer near the escalators. Use it!

    Watch out for the pickpockets they like hanging in here because all the travelers come here. They like to do their crime in the back traveling in 2, 3, or 4. Police are never there or Cta supervisor

    Elevators are very slow and full of urine. If they were faster, it would give people less time to pee and both problems would be.solved.

    Blue line is all the way downstairs. Red line is 2 blocks east on State (follow the traffic on Lake Street). Every other line in town is up on the elevated tracks.

    CTA Passengers: MOVE TOWARD THE CENTER OF ALL TRAINS AND BUSES! Standing in the doorways so more passengers cannot get on is crazy rude. Just be courteous. :)

    Count on one of the escalators being broken at most times. Also, STAND ON THE RIGHT, PASS ON THE LEFT. The escalator isn't a ride!!

    Clearly the renovation of this station is a union job. They have been working on it for at least 5 years. It's not the pyramids boys.

    No one rail can kill you, you need to be grounded to to shunt the source, so just don't touch two rails at once :)

    If you're going west on the Green Line after about 10:00, I've generally found that it's a good idea to board the front car (with the conductor). Better safe than sorry...

    Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after using public transportation. Especially during flu season. There’s a way to stay well.
