The commuter train is your best option. See the answer to your post in the Illinois forum.

I will help you! You've got a few choices-to get down there. There are busses that go down Roosevelt to Forest Park el (714 Pace?), take that into the city and short walk to State and Lake where you can catch the CTA bus to NP, OR take the Metra and cab it to the same bus stop or direct to NP. OR take the Metra to Oak Park, transfer to Green Line get off at State and Lake and catch the bus. There are also free trolleys around Madison and State to NP, but they can get packed, esp. leaving NP. Do not count on them. You can buy CTA cards at the CVS right near the Green Line/Forest Park for 6 or 7 dollars for all day-a real steal.

So it all depends on where you're at in Lombard.
