As we know, Chicago is one of the transportation hubs of our great USA. Therefore, one shouldn't have much difficulty in using a comfortable mode of transportation to get to Chicago.
Chicago has two airports; O'Hare and Midway. Midway is used by several low cost airlines and one of those lines may fly out of your homeport. You will not have courtesy transportation by the Hotel from Midway. Hotel courtesy transportation is only from O'Hare.
Just a reminder. Don't hesitate to ask for Airport, etc., assistance in getting transportation to/from your departure gates if you have difficulty in moving about. In your travels, notify the hotel or any reserved facility that you will frequent about your needs in advance. If you are in need of some special medical assistance while at the reunion, please notify Bill Geise or me. We will try to find a source for your care and notify you prior to the reunion.
