Getting to Soldier Field?

You would be unwise to drive to Soldier Field. If you must, plan ahead. For tailgating, try to buy an advance ticket for the Waldron Deck (upper level), just south of Soldier Field, or arrive very early for the cash lot at McCormick Place (Lot B). You may want to search the secondary ticket market for a parking pass for one of the tailgating lots.

Public transit is a much better option. The CTA Red, Orange, and Green Lines stop at Roosevelt & State, and connections to the Brown and Blue Lines are a couple stops away. It’s not a short walk, but only in the worst of winter is it an unpleasant one. You’ll be joined by thousands of Bears fans, though the path is wide enough for all, creating a cheery atmosphere after a win.

Metra suburban trains arriving at Ogilvie or Union Station in the Loop are met by an express bus to Soldier Field, and several suburbs run direct PACE express buses on game days. While the CTA #128 Soldier Field Express and #146 Museum Campus buses also run to the stadium, you may want to bail after a certain point and walk the rest of the way, due to traffic.

Chicago’s new DIVVY bike share program might be the best way to reach Soldier Field from downtown or the Loop. You can rent a bike ($7 for unlimited rides for 24 hours) and take a leisurely ride along the lakefront to the stadium.

I would suggest taking the public transit to the game rather than driving.  It is a much quicker and better option. The metro suburban trains are another option instead of drivng.  The express bus to Soldier Field, and several suburbs run direct PACE express buses on game days. Chicago also has a new bike share program that might be the best way to reach Soldier Field from downtown during September or October, but after that it would be impossible to ride unless you want to be frozen.
