For transportation from either O'Hare or Midway airports, we suggest that you use Northshore Taxi (1-800-244-9200) or American Taxi (1-847-255-9600). They charge a flat fee for transport to the suburbs (approximately $26), are reliable, and know the area well.
After retrieval of luggage, call one of the numbers above. There are telephones in the baggage claim area and there is also a bank of courtesy telephones which connect directly to the cab company. Tell the taxi company your location (baggage claim area #) and destination (Evanston), and the company will tell you where to meet them and the number of the assigned cab. They always have cabs circling the airport and generally arrive within 5 minutes.
Limited parking is available on campus. See campus map below. Please plan to arrive early. Also, shuttle service will be provided from the Orrington Hotel in Evanston to the event as indicated below.
