CTA Directions

All Lines Except Red and Blue

  • Take any line except red and blue to Randolph/Wabash if you can walk up and down stairs. Walk against the one-way traffic on Randolph Street less than a block to reach the building.

Red Line

  • From the red line, exit at the Lake Station and walk toward Old Navy and turn left on Randolph Street.

Blue Line + Handicap Accessibility

  • For handicap-accessibility, exit at Clark/Lake. Turn right on Lake Street after exiting the station and right again on Clark Street. Go one block and turn left on Randolph (view map) — about 10 minutes walking time.
  • If you can walk up and down stairs, use the Washington Station and walk on Washington Street in the same direction as the one-way traffic to reach the Chicago Cultural Center.
