Don't expect assistance from CTA station clerks. They are not there to help you. Station clerks are not trained in customer service or CTA systems. And they will not prevent violence, theft, or vandalism. Station clerks are there only to be a witness to farejumping.

The tour was very interesting and showed me a part of the city I haven't seen before! The Pedway can be quite confusing (even for locals like myself) and Margaret explained how it came to be and showed us how to navigate it. I feel...More

When the temperatures outside plummeted to single digits, we were the smartest tourists in Chicago when we decided to tour the Pedway, which goes on for miles but is completely indoors. Margaret is an ideal guide: informative, entertaining, and a great resource. Very glad I...More

Margaret is very engaging and knowledgeable about the Pedway. I learned a lot, even though I have lived in Chicago for 36 years! The tour would be good for teens and up.

Margaret was fun and informative about the use and history of the pedway. I would highly recommend this tour. Now I want to explore it on my own. She catered to all ages.

My daughter and I did the Chicago Pedway tour on a snowy January day, which was perfect because you're only slightly aware of the outdoor conditions throughout the tour. It could be a great choice for a hot & humid day as well. Margaret is...More
