Chicago Transit Authority makes navigating the windy city a breeze; getting to Soldier Field is no exception. You can easily navigate to the stadium by CTA's expansive train or bus system, or by a combination of the two. CTA recommends planning your trip using Google Maps or Goroo – an online trip planner provided by Illinois’ Regional Transit Authority.

Travel by Train

Board a CTA train -- the train system is colloquially called the “L” -- to get to Soldier Field. Roosevelt Station is the closest stop to the field, and red, orange or green line trains stop there. The station is approximately 1 mile from Soldier Field. Once out of the station, head east on Roosevelt Road and take a left onto the foot path just before Columbus Drive. On this foot path, keep right until you reach McFetridge Drive, where you will make a left to reach the northern entrance of Soldier Field Stadium.

Bears' Stadium by Bus

Two buses travel directly to Soldier Field: the Soldier Field Express and line 146, Inner Drive/Michigan Express. The Soldier Field Express provides transportation from seven locations throughout Chicago, including Yorktown and Palos Heights. This line is only in operation before and after a Bears home game. Line 146 runs regularly north and south along State Street and Michigan Avenue, parallel to the "L" red line. You can catch line 146 one block north of Roosevelt Station. Take line 146 south and exit at Museum Campus for the north entrance of Soldier Field Stadium.
