Metra Directions

If you’re traveling on the Metra Electric District, exit at the 18th Street Station. A path from the station leads directly to Solider Field. Walking time is 5 minutes. You can connect with Metra in the Loop next to Randolph/Wabash CTA Station via the Millennium Metra Station (Randolph at N. Michigan Avenue).


A Divvy bike dock is available in between Soldier Field and The Field Museum off E. McFetridge Drive. If traveling via CTA, you can hop on a bike near the intersection of Roosevelt Road and S. Wabash Avenue next to the station. We like the iPhone Chicago Bikes app for navigating to docks.
