Make Commuting to Downtown Chicago Easy From the Right Location!
If you’ve begun to notice a trend in Chicagoland, it’s that top-notch corporations like McDonald’s and Google have claimed homes in the heart of downtown Chicago. Even going so far as to provide transportation from the Metra rail’s final stop to their own doors for commuting staff members. According to Nancy Miller of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Chicago has always been at the heart of American business. Many who want to be close enough to Chicago to hitch a ride aboard a train, bus, and occasional plane occasionally want the same flexibility to enjoy the calmer pace of suburban life. This is where La Grange, IL and its surrounding towns of La Grange Park, Hinsdale, Western Springs, and Brookfield come to play. City access—Suburban living.
So You Want to Commute, But What’s Available?
Welcome to a commuter’s paradise! Metra Railway, CTA trains and Pace buses for nearby travel. Amtrak trains and both Chicago-O’Hare and Chicago-Midway airplanes for long distance travel. If you’ve had it in mind to get from A to Z without needing to depend on a personal car to do so, the La Grange area might just be the new place to consider making house and home.
The Metra Railway connects a multitude of Chicagoland together. With 11 separate train lines expanding out from downtown Chicago, you can get almost anywhere.
