The monorail is replaced by a bus to the parking lots at OHare during reconstruction, get the one that says Metra and the Metra station is adjacent to the rent a car facility, and the bus will drop you off at the platform. NOTE that this is only an option on weekdays, since North Central Service doesn't operate on weekends. Daze
We are arriving on a Sunday, so Metra would not be an alternative.

I do not fear using the Blue Line with luggage. We will only be carrying one check-in-bag and one carry-on each, and I had no problems negotiating the Blue Line O'Hare - Monroe R/T with a similar amount of luggage last October.
