The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) maintains an extensive system of elevated trains (also known as “the L”) and buses throughout Chicago and Evanston. The train stop closest to Kellogg is the Purple Line Foster stop on Church and Davis Streets. The 201 bus departs from the Howard St. terminal and stops on the corner of Foster and Sheridan, directly in front of the Kellogg School.

Be advised, while inexpensive, taking the CTA from the airport can take up to 90 minutes and requires transferring trains.
