Travel Information

O'Hare International Airport (ORD) - General Information:


O'Hare International Airport provides connections to more cities, more often than any other airport in the world. On the outskirts of the city and connected to Chicago city limits by a thin strip of land, over 190,000 people travel through O'Hare every day, and the airport was voted "Best Airport in North America" by Business Traveler International for seven years in a row.




The average rate for taxi service from Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport to Schaumburg is $35.00. From Midway it is $60.  If you want to make an advance reservation for taxi service, you can contact or simply hail a cab when you exit the airport.


GO Airport Express Airport Shuttle Service to O’Hare (ORD) Airport Airport Express offers airport shuttle services between Chicago area locations and O'Hare and Midway Airports. Efficient, safe, and economical airport shuttles depart from O'Hare and Midway Airports every 15 minutes for Chicago downtown and many suburban locations. Ground transportation is arranged by making a reservation. Please Click Here to make your airport shuttle reservation/s, or call 1-800-284-3826 and use your 10% discount code: ”UFNC” (all one word).

Why is O'Hare's Airport Code "ORD"?

It does seem odd that it's ORD -- after all, there's not even a "D" in O'Hare -- until you find out that O'Hare's original name until 1949 was Orchard Field Airport, and the airport code stuck around after the name change.
