Passengers can now enroll in TSA Pre✓®, a program that provides a more efficient security checkpoint screening process, in which passengers are not required to remove their shoes, light jackets, and belts and are able to leave laptops and compliant liquids in carry-on bags (also available at O'Hare International Airport). TAKE THE TRAIN TO & FROM THE AIRPORT • O’Hare: The CTA Blue Line takes you directly to the lower level concourse of the O’Hare station, which connects Terminals 1, 2 and 3. • Midway: The CTA Orange Line connects you directly to Midway station, located next to the airport terminal building and connected by an enclosed walkway.
