New to neighborhood soon - Commute Times?

Hello! We are planning to move to Morgan Park in 2 months. I've been trying to research commute times to the loop but of course Google maps gives me a HUGE range. Just curious what people's commute times are like? Our start/end times at work vary quite a bit, but in general any input is appreciated. Public transport is not an option.

  • Paul Active resident

    Hello, and welcome. I can say in this case Google maps is correct. If you are commuting to the loop during M-F rush times (7:00am-9:30am inbound ; 3:30pm - 6:30pm outbound) you can expect 45 minutes average. Its a shame commuting is not an option because the Metra Rock Island...

    Hello, and welcome. I can say in this case Google maps is correct. If you are commuting to the loop during M-F rush times (7:00am-9:30am inbound ; 3:30pm - 6:30pm outbound) you can expect 45 minutes average. Its a shame commuting is not an option because the Metra Rock Island can have you downtown on time every day in 25-35 min depending on which station you leave from.

    On days when the stars align I have been downtown and parked in just under 20 min, but this has happened maybe twice.

    Paul is right. Google is very accurate with drive times. But Metra is an excellent option. It's comfortable and you can get a lot done on the train--reading, etc. Don't forget, when driving you have the cost of fuel and parking. Even with the increase in monthly ticket costs, it's cost effective.

    Unfortunately Google is right, the commute times vary wildly. Some days you get bogged down in traffic and some days you get lucky and zip through. You just have to leave early enough that you are on time at the latest but will likely have extra time once you get there.
    If you haven't bought property there you should highly consider it. You can have a nice house for as low as $700/month. Illinois has a grant to give you money for the down payment and closing costs.
