I've gone over to the city office Addison and Roscoe twice in an attempt to buy my city sticker, and the line is out the door and down the block. Both times I only had about a half hour, so I just left. I didn't send it in though the mail because when I did last year, it never came and I had to make a trip downtown to get it replaced, which was about a two hour adventure and the CTA fare cost.
Can you tell me if lines are long at any Ward office sales, or if some currency exchange locations charge only a nominal fee? I really think $5.50 is too much over the price for the convenience, but am weighing the wait time vs. the extra cost.
Anyone have any suggestions?
