Consolidated "Parking at/near ORD" thread

Does anyone know if the "F" lot is open? The last time I went to use it, post 9/11, it had been closed. Thanks.

was just at ORD, F still was closed.

E it seems, has yet to fill up since 9/11. I fly frequently and live near ORD and have not seem F in use since then.

After the new lot across the street from E opens, I would find it hard to believe if F ever will open again.

E was full for Thanksgiving but they didn't open F. They were giving coupons to park at the regular short term parking lot and to have the price adjusted at the payment time.

Thanks for info, lowest price is $13 a day. I can't remember where we parked last time, it has been several years, but we only paid $10 a day with some kind of discount I got from their web site. Has anyone parked for less than $13 a day lately? Thanks

The F lot on the east side of Mannheim is the one that used to be cheapest ($8 or $9 2 years ago). It got taken over by TSA. Now E/G on the west side of Mannheim at $13 are the cheapest run by the airport. If you want to try for cheaper, I think one of the rental car agencies is a little south of 190 on Mannheim and offers parking.

Remote is $13 a day, I think. It's connected to the terminals via monorail train. Not a bad setup.

There are other lots off-site that are cheaper. Transportation to ORD is via shuttle bus. Not sure what the savings are, but to me it's a PITA to call the bus, wait for them, etc. etc.

My personal preference is my client's office building at Higgins & Manheim. Free parking, only cost is the taxicab that takes me to my car's trunk.

I like off site parking for going to the airport (I use Avistar on Mannheim). I drive in to their facility, leave my car and keys, jump in a shuttle, and off to ORD. Works great.

The problem is returning. The long, dark walk to the Bus Shuttle center is, well, long. Then you have to wait for the shuttle. What a pain.

Because of that, I have been taking cabs. Depending on where you live, they have fixed rates that can be very reasonable. The largest company is American Taxi (though I use Blue Cab since they know the streets around Oak Park where I live).

I think the cheapest is Thrifty if you use a coupon

Avistar goes to the bus center, but thrifty goes to each terminal.

sosafan,

Thanks for the tip. Thrifty drops off AND picks up curbside? I wonder how they can do this when no one else that I know of (parking, hotel) can. Probably because they are a car rental outfit as well! I will have to try then next time.

Use caution if you get a taxi for that short of a trip. Some of those cabbies have been waiting in the taxi lot for a few hours and if you want a ride to the McDonald's, you may be in for some abuse or worse. These guys want the long rides -- granted, you'll have a "suburban" taxi -- but if they draw you, they may not be happy. Same admonition applies to folks going to Cumberland and the Kennedy in a "city" cab. Those guys want to go downtown.

Also, be real sure that it's ok to park overnight in those lots (some may require stickers or passes for overnight). It would suck big time to find your car towed and have the indignity of the taxi ride to a far-off tow lot, plus the expense of bailing out your car.

I have a friend who parks at one of the hotels at Mannheim and Higgins (I forget which one). They actually will let you park for a relatively small fee and you can ride the hotel shuttle to ORD.

The Cumberland CTA lot is $10.75 a day. The Rosemont CTA lot does not allow overnight parking, but is $1.50 for the day, so it might be a good choice for a day trip, if you can find a spot.

Cheap Long-Term Parking at ORD?

My wife and I will be driving from Wisconsin down to ORD to catch a UAL flight to China, and will be gone for almost 3 weeks. Does anyone know what is the cheapest long-term parking alternative in the O'Hare area?
