Chicago Sports Venues

Take CTA to the Game

The easiest way to get to major sporting events is the CTA, with fast, frequent and convenient ‘L’ train and bus service to major Chicago sports venues!

 All stations and bus routes on this page are accessible.


On this page:


Soldier Field

Home of the Chicago Bears

1410 S Museum Campus Dr, Chicago, IL

Plan a trip to here with Google Transit

Trains

Red, Green and Orange Lines
The stadium is a few blocks east of the Roosevelt stops on the CTA RedOrange and Green Lines (about a 15 minute walk or a short bus ride).

You can walk from the ‘L’ stops by heading east on Roosevelt Road from State Street until you cross Columbus. To your left will be a walkway that gently slopes down through the Museum Campus to a pedestrian underpass to get to the other side of Lake Shore Drive.  Then, turn right to head south past the Field Museum and on to Soldier Field.

To get to the Roosevelt stop from the north (including downtown) and West Side, take a Red Line train toward 95th, a Green Line train toward Ashland/63rd or Cottage Grove or an Orange Line train toward Midway. From the south and southwest, take a Red Line train toward Howard, an Orange Line train toward the Loop or a Green Line train toward Harlem/Lake.

Buses

You can also use CTA bus #128 Soldier Field Express or the #130 Museum Campus, which serve Union Station and the Ogilvie Transportation Center (Metra). From downtown, you can use the #130 or the #146 Inner Drive/Michigan Express, all of which connect with Red, Orange and Green Lines on Roosevelt. All of these bus routes stop in front of the stadium.

Purple Line Express

The ballpark is also just a couple of blocks south of the Sheridan stop on the CTA Red Line.

Linden-bound Purple Line Express trains will not make a special stop at Sheridan and Purple Line Express service operates only during weekday rush peiods. For service back north after the game, use the Red Line from Addison or Sheridan (where you can transfer to Purple Line local service and Yellow Line trains at Howard).
