Public transportation near The Peninsula Chicago is easy to navigate. You can take advantage of the Chicago Transport Authority, or the CTA, knowing it offers one of the most reliable and convenient public transportation systems in the country. The red line runs up and down State Street — just a few blocks froms the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel — to whisk you to most areas of the city, while the Metra can be found at Union and Ogilvie stations, if you want to venture out of the Loop and into the suburbs. Tickets and day passes are easy to purchase from the automated ticket machines, which accept cash and credit cards. This all said, if you don’t want to walk, hop in a taxi. In the summer, go for a ride in the water taxi, which is not only a great way to get around, but allows you to see Chicago from a different vantage point.
