OP, once you arrive at the train station, it is pretty common to walk to your office. Since the train stations are both clustered on the western edge of downtown/loop, almost everyone has some sort of walk. Please factor that walk into your commuting times calculator!

Helpful, Chet. OP, this incident occurred nowhere near the Loop.

I work downtown. I have no problem taking buses at night, unless it's after going out, but I doubt you will be in similar condition after a workday. Unless you have extremely unconventional work hours, any time you will be in the Loop there will be lots of white-collar professionals on buses.

That article linked to describe incidents taking place over 10 miles south of downtown, at a time/place where you are highly, highly, highly unlikely to be as a suburban commuter.

But honestly I'd just recommend walking. With waiting for a bus and rush-hour Loop congestion, you may find that walking comes out ahead. On weekdays there are always pedestrians on the sidewalk so you don't have to worry you will be the only one walking.

Default Barrington and Palatine?

These two cities look interesting and very accessible to downtown via Metra. Can anyone tell me what makes these unique?
