Parking At O’Hare — The “Trib” Gets it wrong again


Parking At O’Hare — The “Trib” Gets it wrong again

The Chicago Tribune goes overboard on parking issues at O’Hare commenting on the 45 minute trip from the airports long stay lots to the terminals and the overcrowding and other issues.  Read about it here.

So I did a test — I went to Google, typed in "Parking at O’Hare" and got a list of seven very convenient off airport parking facilities, many inside in hotels, that are cheaper, better, faster, than self parking at the airport. All claim to get you to your terminal within 15 minutes. All claim to be up to $15 a day less expensive. and virtually all have easier access than fighting the traffic and Gordian Knot of roads within the airport proper.

By the way, there were a lot more, the seven I got from Google were simply the first listing — there were another 20 or so on the first page.

What’s the problem? The guy in the article was fuming and complaining. The Trib article didn’t even mention the fact that one could solve their problem with a quick right (or left) turn off the interstate and park in a convenient, well run, and inexpensive private facility.
