"To Pullman by train" Pullman Transportation Tip by Dabs

Pullman Transportation: 5 reviews and 2 photos

Metra Electric trains stop at the Pullman station (111th Street). Please take a look at the website for detailed directions on how to get from the train to the Visitors Center. If you head in the wrong direction, the surrounding neighborhoods can be pretty rough.

The trip from downtown takes less than thirty minutes by train. See the attached website link for schedule information.

Metra Electric trains can be picked up at the Randolph Street station (at Michigan Avenue) or Van Buren Street Station (at Michigan Avenue). Pullman is listed on the schedule as a flag stop so you must tell the conductor that you want to get off at Pullman.

The South Shore (NICTD) trains stop at 115th/Kensington which is a little further of a walk. The South Shore trains also run from the same two stations, be sure to check the schedule as not all trains stop at 115th/Kensington.
