Thread: Public Transport from Chicago O'Hare

    Public Transport from Chicago O'Hare

    Hi,

    I just wondered whether anyone knew if it was possible to get from Chicago O'Hare to Oshkosh via public transport?

    In previous years I have rented a car, however I would like to avoid doing that if possible next year.


    Many thanks

    Chris

    There's hourly bus service between O'Hare and Milwaukee Mitchell airport all year long
    https://web.coachusa.com/wisconsinco...areairport.asp

    From there, another bus runs to the convention

    That only runs twice a day though.

    Check on just flying in to MKE. Rental cars MUCH cheaper, or, as noted above, just catch the shuttle. For a full week of convention, I want to say that there's about a $200 diff between ORD and MKE on the cars. BIG fees at ORD.

    Chris, Looking at the two schedules, it could prove tough to do the bus thing as a 'same day'? Overnight in Milwaukee, bus next a.m.? No worries.

    Are you staying someplace with public transportation access during AirVenture?

    Hi,

    Many thanks for the replies so far, I will certainly look at flights to MKE.

    My plan was to stay at the University this year, I have previously gone for a hotel in Appleton or Green Bay but I hear good things about the University so thought I would try that.

    Well, of course your mileage may vary and all that, but my wife and I stay in the dorms every single year since 2005. We stay in Taylor Hall, the a/c'd dorm, although there is a new dorm (Heritage? that doesn't sound right...) that goes for 3x taylor rate that is a/c'd, but will sleep (?) 4-6 and has their own bathroom. Also, UWO says more dorms will be a/c'd in 2018. The thing we like about the dorms is the city shuttle bus that takes you to the grounds non-stop and bypasses all of the cars trying to get into a lot. We travel on different schedules, and if you only have one car, makes it easier to let each person leave/return when they want to do so instead of having to wake my wife at 5:30 so I can catch the 7:00 AM bus. She does her own thing on the grounds - she's into the museum presentations, warbirds, DC-3's, etc, and I volunteer, check out homebuilding, technology, exhibits etc. Many days I don't even see her until suppertime! We have about 12 folks we dine with at a different restaurant each night. Fun times.....
