Hello Chicago

I am moving to Chicago this week from India and need to travel to (South Roselle Street) Palatine for work while staying at Evanston (campus drive).

I have work five days a week and google maps tells me that even if I take the Metra till Palatine station, I will still have the last 3 miles to cover by road. Since I wont have a car, I will mostly need to depend on Taxi and this could get very expensive.

I have been recommended to opt for a car pool. Is there anyone here who goes to work using the same route.

Please let me know if there is anyone traveling this route so I can collaborate.

Thank you

The regional transit authority, PACE, does run a service to help match riders with those looking to form a shared means of transit. https://www.pacerideshare.com/en-US/default.aspx

I have heard mixed feedback on it's effectiveness. You may do better with ads in Craigslist or the free weekly, The Reader.
