The Metra

The Metra train's South Chicago/University Park line (orange route on the link provided) is the line I take to go downtown. On an express train, from my stop (55th) to downtown, it's an eight minute ride. If it is not express (which means it will make two more local stops), the ride is fifteen minutes. Round trip costs $4.10 but kids eleven and under are free all summer.


  1. Good transit picture, perfect shutter speed. Do you live in Hyde Park? Several years ago I was looking for a bumper sticker reading "My Money and My Children Go To The University of Chicago." Both of them. Yikes!


  2. This photo is simply stunning because it shows motion without to be blurred. Wonderful, I love it.

  3. Thanks for the comments, Bob and Fabrizio. It's awesome to receive comments like these from you--they are very encouraging.

    Bob, yes, I do live in Hyde you may notice many of the photos I take are from either downtown or around HP. [Oh my, not one but both kids huh? Very dear indeed...]
