The Quincy Station on the brown, orange and pink line and the Clinton Blue Station are both a 7-minute walk away from Union Station, although neither is handicap accessible. To reach Quincy, walk west via W. Adams or W. Jackson Street to S. Wells Street. To reach Clinton, walk south on S. Clinton Street next to Union Station in the same direction as the one-way traffic.

Tip: Use the Clinton Station for a connection to O’Hare International Airport or board an orange-line Midway train at Quincy to reach Midway International Airport. If you need a handicap-accessible CTA station, walk on Jackson Street into the city to reach the Jackson red and blue stations.


The Ogilvie Transportation Center is a block away on W. Madison Street. You can walk along the Union Station underground train platform as a shortcut — walking away from the Union Station entrance to reach a stairway to W. Madison. For more information, see How to Ride Metra Trains.
