Dave, even though we are not coming this weekend, will this effect our journey in from o'hare on a midweek in April or going back to the airport on a weekend?

Will the trains be running but at a reduced rate? We generally get bus replacements and they are awful so i would rather take a taxi if so.

Cheers.

It will add about 30 minutes to the commute to or from O'Hare if you are traveling between 10 p.m. Friday and 4 a.m. Monday.
